GrantStation Overview:

GrantStation (GS) is the premiere suite of online grant research resources to help your organization find local, statewide, and national funding opportunities.

All of us can use some help in finding and identifying new funding sources. Does the lack of time limit your ability to submit grant requests? Do you have a grants strategy for this year and next year? These are significant issues that many nonprofit organizations struggle to overcome. GS provides you with the tools and resources to enhance your grant writing and development strategies!

Come join us to learn all about GS, and how you can utilize your membership with CVNL or the Volunteer Center of Sonoma County and get GS for only $75/year! 

Grant Writing Class:

Join CVNL and our Director of Learning & Leadership Cinzia Perlingieri, for this invigorating and informative workshop that will teach you all the right steps to plan for and submit good grant proposals to foundations, corporations, and individual donors. No matter what level of experience you have, you'll find the A to Z of planning, writing and submitting high-quality proposals here!

You will learn how to:

  • Plan effectively for your grant writing efforts
  • Understand the funder before writing
  • Write a funder-centered narrative
  • Avoid common mistakes and pitfalls in communication
