Join us for a Social Impact Institute: Learning Lab workshop, “Grants 101: Grant Writing, Grantor Research, and Program Evaluation,” where we will demystify the grant-seeking process. From proposal narratives to budget forms, from outcome measures to funder relationships, we will cover the all the basics you need to know to submit quality grant proposals to potential funders (and, properly manage your grants once received). A representative from George Washington University Virginia Science and Technology Campus Library will also teach participants how to use the Foundation Directory Online, a local resource provided by GWU Loudoun, available to local nonprofits seeking grant funding.
The Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties’ team of Amy Owen, President, and Nicole Acosta, Director of Grants and Nonprofit Programs, have more than 40 years combined of nonprofit experience, including development, nonprofit management, grant writing, and grant making.
Tara Patterson serves as library manager at the George Washington University Virginia Science and Technology Campus (Ashburn, VA), with more 20 years of experience in providing student research assistance and interlibrary loan services. In addition to traditional academic library resources, the branch offers public visitor access to the Foundation Directory Online, a free service and database that helps nonprofits search for the grantmakers most likely to fund their projects.
