  1. Finding Grants David W. Dillard, Arcadia Valley R-II & Melanie Dillard, Central R-III

  2. Objectives • How to match your needs to funding • Know what you want • Know what you will or can do, produce, make, support and have time for • Where to find grants • State & Federal • Grant Sites • Internet Searching • How to select a grant • Fit your needs, capabilities • Budget & match • Deliverables and timeline

  3. Write out the following: Step 1 • A brief idea or concept of the project: formalize your thoughts and purpose for doing this (the project) • A list of items needed: supplies, equipment, software and their costs • Your objectives: what is the project going to accomplish (this may be behavioral or just “I want a SmartBoard” • Your timeline: how soon?, do I have time?, can I wait?

  4. Timeline Step 1 • Make a timeline • Determine the final date for submission and work back • List everything that must be completed and when • Add who will help or where to find information • Define Tasks

  5. Your Need, Want, and/or Desire • How large or small is the project • Individual, group, building, district • Dollar amount you need • List what you want: • Material: supplies, software, equipment • Is there need for salary/stipend • Outcomes: raise MAP scores, improve health/fitness, hands-on-learning, community service • Deliverables: • What will or can you produce? • What are the deadlines & application timeframe Step 1

  6. Where to find a funder • Determine your need, want, desire • Missouri State & Federal sites • DESE website • MOREnet website • Federal Grants • Grant and Foundation Sites • Google search Step 2

  7. Types of Funding Step 2 • Determine whether you are looking for public or private funding • Public: usually a governmental agency, more paperwork, more accountability, more scrutiny • Private: deal with targeted proposals, easier to write, often less required paperwork and fewer rules, may want to call and inquire about the program

  8. Know Your Funding Source • Learn the funder’s perspective – including governmental agencies • Learn about biases • Learn about the review process • Contact them before you submit – do not ask about what is on the website – you should be able to read • Search private funder’s website – Know who they are and what they do Step 2

  9. Contacting Funders Step 3 • Web page • Letter of inquiry • Phone • Visit

  10. What you need to look for from a potential funder • Web page • Guidelines • Grant priorities • Rules and procedures • Request for Proposal (RFP) • Application packets • Scoring Guide • Past projects funded/sample grants Step 3

  11. Evaluating Funders Step 4 • You need to develop a system to evaluate potential grants • Need to go beyond the common to narrow the choices to find the best grant for you • Goal/Purpose • Amount of funding • Deadlines/Timeframe

  12. Grant Evaluation • Again, know what you want! • Develop a grant evaluation form • Sample provided • Develop a system for scoring, rating, ranking potential grants • Complete the grant evaluation form

  13. Grant Evaluation

  14. Next • Our next step is to choose a grant and: • Complete the application for practice • Complete the application and submit it • Work on an application to get a “feel” for the process • Review a couple grants to “see what they really look like”

  15. Next • The third session: • will continue the process of grant management • Answer questions • Work through the “sample” grants
