We were invited to be on a panel in Toronto last week on our favorite subject.

Using Technology for Grants, a NetTuesday event organized by a wonderful team from TechSoup Canada.

Are you using technology to seek, research, organize, write your grants??? Should you be?

Grant writing and grant seeking is very familiar territory for most nonprofits and charities. There is lots of planning, lots of writing and lots of organizing of time, information and processes; it is hard to keep it all straight. Grants and technology usually get limited resources in an organization so optimizing is key. We hope to help nonprofits optimize their time and their effectiveness with the use of technology for researching, seeking, and organizing while doing grant writing as well as for organizing once you have been successful in the granting process.

Grant yourself access to better grants.

It was great being on a panel with Imagine Canada, Frontline Partners Youth Network and Jessica Hazen from CSI. And Techsoup Canada has some really nice volunteers (that’s them below with the staff).

As a sidenote, I have to admit that the first couple of times I was at CSI I didn’t really “get” it. But now I’m a convert. We need one in Montreal.
