Grant Seeking and Grant Writing 

The Indiana Nonprofit Resource Network is pleased to join the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library to help nonprofit organizations find the grant opportunities they need to sustain their critical work. Participants will learn what funders are looking for in grant proposals and how to find applicable grants. 

In this workshop, we will review what every grant maker is looking for prior to funding a proposal. You will learn what will improve your possibility of being funded and what will reduce the possibility of funding. This is a foundational review of the basics of a successful grant proposal. 

Participants will also learn about resources available in the Foundation Center of the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library to help you more effectively find grant opportunities. Receive hands-on training in the use of the Foundation Directory Online, a custom searchable database providing in-depth information on over 92,000 grant makers.
