Registration is closed.

Check back mid-December to register for our Spring 2024 grant cycle sessions.

The Longwood Foundation offers Grant Information Sessions to prospective applicants.

The sessions are not intended to be a grant writing course but rather to help applicants understand what the Foundation is looking for in a proposal

  • Limit of two seats per organization; and, we request those attendees be the organization’s leader and Board Chair. If not available, one of the two attendees must be the leader or Board Chair.
  • Due to space limitations, preference will be given to nonprofit organizations that are eligible to apply in the next funding cycle (Fall 2023).
  • Please be aware that there is a pre-session “homework” assignment that is a requirement for attendance. If you are unwilling or unable to complete the homework, you will not be able to participate. This is a firm rule since the session discussion is based on the results of the homework. Once you register, you will receive the link to the assignment.
  • The Information Session has been refreshed for Fall 2023, so even if you have attended in the past, you will find value in participating.
  • Please note that participation neither improves nor harms an organization’s likelihood of receiving funding; however, participation has proven stronger grant proposals.
