  • Idealware: How to Get Your Technology Project Funded: Tips from Grantmakers

    Product not yet rated

    Our partner, Idealware, presents a recorded three-part series. See Overview for more details and how to access the discount code.

    Our partner, Idealware, offers a three-part series of 90-minute recordings.

    Imagine doing your job without a computer or any software. Ridiculous, right? Yet many funders overlook technology. The result is a nonprofit sector that is slowed down by outdated and ineffective tools. But there’s hope. Funders aren’t against technology—they just want to know that investing in your technology needs will lead to better outcomes. That’s why we’re offering this three-part course. We want to show you how to convince funders that your tech projects matter so that you have the tools you need to do your best work.

    During this course, you’ll hear directly from funders about what they look for in a technology proposal and what it takes to make your technology needs stand out. We’ll start out by helping you set the stage for funding your project by zeroing in on your potential funders. Then you’ll get the chance to ask our panel of grantmakers your own questions during a moderated discussion. And we’ll wrap up by talking about the practical steps for moving forward and getting the funding you deserve, including how to contextualize your project to show how important it is to your organization, how to budget for future technology and additional details that go into writing a strong proposal.
