AmeriCorps members are often tasked with finding new sources of funding for their projects. Learn to develop a search strategy that will identify funders who are aligned with your project’s goals, connected with your community, or committed to those your project serves. Gain insights into where to look and how to find out what funders care about and how much support they are likely to provide.
By the end of this session, members will be able to:
Determine where to look for likely funders for your project
Develop a search strategy to find the best potential matches
Gather information that will inform your organization’s decisions about which funders to approach
Identify opportunities for non-cash resources
