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 (Spring 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.
  • If a representative from an organization has participated in the past, it is not necessary to repeat attendance at a session unless there has been a change in the organization’s leader and/or Board Chair role.
  • The Foundation follows CDC guidelines for COVID-19 protocols.  If you are uncomfortable meeting in person, you should register for the Zoom virtual session.
  • Please note that participation neither improves nor harms an organization’s likelihood of receiving funding.
  • The Foundation reserves the right to cancel due to low attendance.
