Are you deliberate and selective about which grant opportunities you pursue, and which you forgo? If not, you should be! Grant research and writing is energy-intensive, and applying for every single foundation funding opportunity that comes your way is rarely the best or most effective use of your team's time. In this workshop, Thread Strategies will introduce an easy-to-follow and easy-to-use framework for researching and evaluating whether a grant opportunity is really worth the effort and potential revenue. You'll leave this session with new knowledge and confidence that the grants you do choose to write are truly worth all that time at the keyboard as well as a refresh on how to approach general operating fund grants to get you started with your newly-vetted list.
