Responsive Grantwriting: What Grantmakers Really Want to Know

“With diminishing State funding there is no better time than now to focus our energy and resources on pursuing grant funding so that we can continute our critical mission to support student success.”
~ Denise Swett

Community colleges have many grant opportunities available, but often lack the expertise and experience to pursue them. Navigating the grants process can be daunting and time consuming, yet with an organized and strategic approach, grant seeking and proposal writing can result in new funding and program opportunities which contribute to student success. This webinar will review the basics of grants and grantwriting, strategies to evaluate “fit” for the college and methods to navigate institutional politics affiliated with obtaining outside funding.

While there is no doubt that grant funding is tighter these days, there are still hundreds of millions of dollars waiting to be dispersed. Indeed, the U.S. Department of Education has reported that less than 6.5% of the revenue at community colleges comes from federal (non-tuition) and private sources. With the recent White House Summit on Community Colleges, there is no better time to learn strategies on how to obtain more grant funding for our community colleges.
