TechSoup Grant Series: One Hour a Week to Success!

Wish you knew more about applying for grant funding? Does it seem overwhelming and you wonder how to get started? TechSoup is here to help! Our new grant series, Successful Grants in One Hour a Week, will provide you with small steps that cover the entire grant process. Weekly blog posts will outline your steps for the week so you’ll be prepared to apply for a basic grant before the end of the year.

We will cover each phase in the grant writing and submission process:

  1. Prepare
  2. Focus on Priorities and Needs
  3. Develop the Grant Project
  4. Research Funders and Find Appropriate Grants
  5. Write the Grant Proposal
  6. Implement, Evaluate and Continue the Process

There are many library and federal grant opportunities with deadlines in December, so if you are trying to get a grant application out the door, we are just in time to help. Or if you just want to read along with us, you’ll be ready to start grant work in 2011. Watch our blog for the first step tomorrow!
