Sustainable organizations know how to attract diverse and substantial funding. Our Next-Level Funding Webinar Series is designed to help organizations of all sizes understand the ins and outs of applying for larger grants from government and private sources, and up their game for creating winning proposals. Please join us on Wednesday, October 25th, from noon until 1 pm for Dogwood Health Trust and Innovative Funding Partners’ monthly live webinar series titled, “The Similarities and Differences Between Foundation and Government Grant Proposals: A Deep Dive.”

Purpose: As part of a monthly series coordinated by Innovative Funding Partners (IFP) for Dogwood Health Trust, this session explores the defining characteristics of foundation and government grant proposals. This session will be particularly useful for organizations in the initial stages of pursuing grant funding, or those that have received foundation grant funding and are interested in applying for government grants.

Attendees will develop a strong understanding of the commonalities and major differences between foundation and government grants, with special attention given to “writing for the reviewers.” General guidelines for assessing an organization’s readiness for applying for and implementing foundation and government grants will also be covered.
