*KNN is proud to partner with idealware to bring you this webinar opportuntity and provide a registration discount for our members!

You can’t do your job without technology. It’s that simple. Funders need to know that the computers, software, and other technology tools your nonprofit uses are fundamental to your impact in the world. We can help you convince them. Join us for How to Get Your Technology Funded: Tips from Grantmakers, a three-part course designed to give you the tools and knowledge you need to find the right funding source and develop a proposal that will win you the grant. Not only will we show you what it takes to get your technology funded, we’ll give you the chance to ask program officers at major foundations your questions about how to write a strong proposal. Technology is the biggest funding challenge most nonprofits face. Meet that challenge head on with this new course from Idealware.

Series Schedule
All sessions take place Tuesdays at 12 pm Eastern and last for 60 minutes.

February 7: Setting the Stage for Funding

We’ll start by helping you sort out your funding options to identify the best opportunities for technology funding. Would your current foundation funders be a good fit? Would corporations? What about other major donors?

February 14: Ask a Funder

Through a moderated discussion, you’ll get a chance to ask your biggest questions directly to several grantmaking professionals who frequently evaluate technology proposals. Participants will be able to submit their questions in advance and our moderator will ask as many as possible during the 60-minute session.

Sample questions might include: What makes a technology proposal stand out from others? What issues do you see over and over? What makes your non-techie colleagues react positively or negatively toward a technology proposal? If you had one piece of advice to someone seeking funding for a technology project, what would it be?

February 21: Defining the Details for a Strong Proposal

Once you’ve gotten advice from grantmakers, how should you proactively move forward? We'll talk about what details need to be included in a strong proposal with a technology component, including how to frame your project, how to connect your project to your larger mission, how to draft a budget, and how to think through where this project fits within your larger technology ecosystem.
