Funder Focus Series:

Your participation is invited as we learn more about The City of Austin’s Grant for Technology Opportunities Program (GTOPs). GTOPs provides three award pathways for Austin nonprofit groups to apply for funding or devices. Jesse Rodriguez, Interim Program Manager, will talk about how this funding program supports participation in the digital society and will share details about how funds and resources are distributed to area nonprofit organizations.

Series description

What do funders look for in a grant proposal: data, stories, both? What kinds of projects do foundations find inspiring? What choices do funders make in support of communities? Join us for Nonprofit Austin at ACC’s Funder Focus series to learn more about the funding and grantmaking process. Bring your questions for this exceptional opportunity to connect directly with those who make funding decisions that support nonprofit work.
