Start Time:

Session Length:

Room:

Description:
In today’s world of budget constraints, people look for increasingly creative ways to fund their projects. Private foundations are one resource that many consider as they seek to diversify their funding streams. Private foundations, however, are unique entities that require specific, nuanced strategies for approach. Some have regimented proposal submission processes more in keeping with government grants, while others have very loose requirements. Since the processes vary from foundation to foundation, writing a grant proposal for a private foundation can be a somewhat intimidating process for newcomers. Thankfully, there are a number of resources available at CSU for those interested in pursuing foundation funding. In addition to talking about the resources available to you from the Office of Foundation Relations, we’ll provide a snapshot of some helpful techniques you can use when writing proposals to private foundations.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals: The goals of this session are twofold: 1) to provide an overview of the world of private foundations and their grantmaking processes; and 2) to provide an introduction to the services offered by the Office of Foundation Relations that can be of benefit when seeking funding from private foundations. Targeted Audience: CSU Faculty and Staff
