Start Time:

Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:

Description:
Private foundations are one resource that many people consider as they seek to diversify funding streams for their projects. Some foundations 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. The Office of Foundation Relations, in collaboration with development officers throughout the university, is a great resource when it comes to approaching private foundations. In this session, we'll provide an overview of foundation grantmaking trends, highlight the resources available for those seeking foundation funding at CSU, and finally use some case studies to illustrate the do's and don'ts of writing proposals to private foundations.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals: The goals of this session are threefold: 1) to provide an overview of the world of private foundations and their grantmaking processes; 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; and 3) to look at a few real-world examples as case studies to learn how proposals can be optimized. Targeted Audience: CSU Faculty and Staff
