    Family Foundations: A Rising Force for Research Funding

    Format: On-Demand MP4 Download or CD

    Foundation fundingMost PIs seeking private funding focus their efforts on Gates and other “mega foundations.” The problem with this is that the playing field for these entities is very crowded. With federal funding shrinking and large foundations narrowing their focus, what is a PI to do?

    A better strategy may be to focus on smaller foundations that are more accessible. Family foundations typically have more informal proposal structures, and are more easily adaptable to new initiatives and programs. Consider this: in the most recent Giving USA results (2010), while overall private foundation giving remained flat, gifts from small foundations increased more than 20 percent! Also, while larger foundations may only fund proven research projects, family foundations are more likely to be flexible and take a chance on “high risk, high reward” endeavors.

    During this eye-opening 60-minute on-demand training, your expert presenter John Greenhoe, CFRE, will lead a fast paced discussion outlining the advantages of pursuing small foundation funding, and highlighting best practices for obtaining investments from this rising philanthropic force.

      • Understand the advantages of targeting small foundations for your research
      • Cultivation techniques, similar to working with an individual donor, that lead to success
      • How to take full advantage of the flexibility that many small foundations offer in covering “unfundable” research costs
      • Thorough understanding of the missions of small foundations, and crafting proposals accordingly
      • Stewardship practices that can result in ongoing funding success after the initial gift is received
      • And so much more…
