  • Over-reliance on federal funding is risky. One federal grant can fund your entire research, however, lose your grant and all of your research money is gone. This makes the need for diversifying your funding sources with foundation and private grants essential to your success.

    Consider this: In 2016 the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation gave $4.6 billion towards research support, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute gave $663 million, while the Simons Foundation gave $231.7 million, and these are just a few.

    Though it is not expected that private granting sources will surpass federal sources anytime soon, considering the drawbacks in federal funding, foundation funding is an attractive alternative you should not ignore. But what is the best method for initiating a foundation funding request?

    It all starts with a phone call. Making phone contact with the appropriate foundation program officer is important, however, the PI's ability to clearly and succinctly state the problem the research addresses, the work that will be done, and the result of the completed research during this call are key. That's where funding relationship expert, John Greenhoe, MA, CFRE, can help.

    On Tuesday, August 28th at 1 pm ET, during his live 60-minute online training, John will illustrate best practices you can use to initiate a more successful foundation funding request through an assertive phone conversation.
