UPDATE: Due to unexpected circumstances Cynthia can no longer be in Maine in person. She will be the training via the web instead.  Participants can either sign in on their own computer or come to the USM Library and listen and ask questions with others. 


The Maine Philanthropy Center is pleased to host Cynthia Nuara from the Foundation Center for an overview of the Foundation Center's extensive resources and seeking federal grants.

Organizations seeking to diversify their funding may see government grants as the ideal option. But where does an organization even begin with government funding? Is it the right funding option for your organization? How is applying for federal funding different than applying for foundation funding? And is your organization ready to manage a government grant if you receive one?

Learn what you need to know about government funding before you apply, and hear an expert grant reviewer’s advice on what government agencies are looking for in your proposal.
