Grant Maker Briefings



Two Grant Application Briefing Sessions will be held throughout the county for prospective applicants. While attendance at the briefing sessions is not required, it is strongly recommended for organizations applying for grants, particularly those with little or no prior grant-writing experience.

These sessions are free for 501(c)(3) organizations (non-profits) and a valuable opportunity to learn what grant makers anticipate for the upcoming 2016 grant cycle, tips for submitting a competitive grant application and lessons learned from previous years. (Registration link will be provided in early Dec.)

Full grant guidelines and the online application may be found on the Foundation’s website no later than January 10, 2017. The application may only be submitted using the online form.  Completed grants must be submitted in full by 5:00 PM on Monday, February 20, 2017. Grant awards will be announced not later than May 11, 2017.

The briefing sessions will include presentations by other area grant-makers. Scheduled presenters include:  Lisa Davidson (Community Foundation for Brevard); Sarah Balda (Balda Family Foundation); Johnette Gindling (Space Coast Health Foundation) and others are TBA.
