International grants from US foundations Abundantly available yet hard to get through
Annually, American foundations grant 3 to 4 billion dollars internationally: to non-American nonprofits all over the world in the fields of education, health, international development, culture, environment and socio-economic impact. How could your organisation benefit from this funding source?
International US grants are not easy to obtain without understanding the inner workings of the foundations market. Equipped with a proper picture of the market, nonprofits can identify the most promising foundations and consequently better target their grant applications. For nonprofits in the international development, academic/educational, environment, health and arts sector, this seminar is instrumental in gaining access to one of the world's largest grant markets!
