How can we be more strategic in approach to philanthropic funding opportunities?
- record leads and actions re specific funds in google sheet so others can identify opportunity for working together etc
- where funding is regionally specific, share learning and past applications etc
- work together on approach and applications for funding relevant to core global project e.g. better definition of the global open source “project” and the roles/infrastructure etc we are seeking funding for.
I have refreshed original “funding chart” prepared by @CynthiaReynolds and @MyriamBoure (Thanks!) to record philanthropic leads. I have added sheets for each region plus a sheet for “global” opportunities where not regionally specific.
Let’s start adding opportunities in here and providing an update of live opportunities/actions at our monthly hook-up? Suggestions re improvements to process/structure of sheet etc welcome! Remember there are multiple sheets (one for each region).
This week I am going to put in an EOI with Salesforce Foundation and also email the Sloan Foundation.
This is a great starting point database to identify opportunities in your region
