Seed Outreach

Our experts are coming to your area to help you help your community. We are offering full- and half-day workshops this winter that cover everything from the basics of our Investment Strategy, to how to write competitive applications for our Seed, Grow, and Capital Investment Streams. If you’re unable to attend, we also have a series of webinars that cover a wide range of topics.

See the full list of workshops and webinars here.

The first deadline in 2018 is for the Seed Investment Stream. Grant applications are due February 21, 2018 at 5 pm ET, and organization registration closes January 31, 2018, 5 p.m. ET.

If you are wondering whether your program is an ideal candidate for our Seed Investment Stream ask yourself a few questions.

Will my project:

  • Conduct new research or feasibility studies?
  • Test new approaches?
  • Host discussions about emerging issues or new opportunities?
  • Develop a new idea?
  • Launch a new event?
  • Convene people together?
