This 90-minute webinar starts where Grant Prospecting, Part 1 left off, with webinar grants expert Heather Stombaugh continuing your exploration of “deep dive” techniques and how to use them to improve your speed and success grants prospecting. Now, you’ll go even deeper, looking more closely at strategies for how to focus your efforts on funding sources most likely to award you grants. In Part 1, you learned how to prepare for a deep dive by targeting the right databases and using advanced techniques to make keyword, indexing and search work harder to find you the right prospects faster. In Part 2, you’ll see what happens as these techniques go into action, pulling up prospects whose needs and priorities align closely with what your own program delivers. Throughout the webinar, Stombaugh shares “deep dive” tips that have helped her raise over $70 million for nonprofits.
