All sessions for the Spring 2024 application cycle are full. 

Please check back in June for Fall session dates.

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

  • Maximum 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 2024).
  • 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 was refreshed in 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.
