Getting money from a private foundation is different than approaching the NIH or other large federal agencies. At this month’s Funding Focus seminar, Finding Foundation Funding and Writing a Letter of Intent, our speaker will lead you through the process of contacting a foundation, how the OHSU Foundation can help, and where you can find resources. Whether you are a seasoned grant writer or just starting out, this workshop will help you put your best foot forward when you initially approach a private foundation. The workshop will be held on Thursday, June 9, 2011 from 12 to 1 p.m. in Mac Hall 2201.
Specifically, you will learn how to:
- Find foundation funding through the Foundation Directory Online and receive the new OHSU login information.
- Approach a private foundation through a letter of intent. Writing a letter of intent is often the first step in contacting a foundation and it is the best way for you to introduce your research.
This presentation is one of a series of workshops that Research Funding and Development Services (RFDS) offers throughout the year, designed to share advice, tips, and general information on funding for the OHSU research community. It’s open to all faculty, researchers, students, and research administrators at OHSU.
If you are unable to attend, we will post a recorded video of the presentation as well as any handouts on our website no later than the following Monday. For more information about this and other events please visit the RFDS website. For questions, contact email@example.com.
