This 90-minute webinar starts where Grant Prospecting, Part 1 left off, with grants expert Heather Stombaugh continuing your exploration of “deep dive” techniques and how to use them to improve your speed and success grants prospecting. Now, you’ll go even deeper, looking more closely at strategies for how to focus your efforts on funding sources most likely to award you grants.

Turning deep-dive data into strategic prospecting. In Part 1, you learned how to prepare for a deep dive by targeting the right databases and using advanced techniques to make keyword, indexing and search work harder to find you the right prospects faster.

Throughout the webinar, Stombaugh shares “deep dive” tips that have helped her raise over $70 million for nonprofits. Plus, you can ask her your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
