The bootcamp will prepare you to...

Find grant opportunities.

We will show you the databases you can use to find grants from foundations, corporations, and government agencies. You will receive asssessments you can use to determine if the grant opportunities are appropriate for your organization.

Write grant applications.

You will learn the elements of a successful grant application, including how to develop project narratives, budgets, logic models, theory of change, letters of inquiry, and AI prompts that can be used to maximize writing time.

Manage grants you win.

Each grant has its own set of compliance measures that required by the funder. Make sense of this can be a nightmare if you have never received a grant. We will demystify the paperwork and processes you need to stay on your funder's good side!

In 2023, our team implemented a new practice in which we choose a nonprofit founder from Venice and teach them to write grants. We chose Audrey Faison from Concrete Queenz, who recently joined the Venice Chamber of Commerce, because her organization’s mission of empowering young girls through skateboarding and promoting play equity throughout Los Angeles resonated with us. As Dogtown Fundraising, we also felt particularly stoked to launch this program in support of a local skateboarding nonprofit because we wanted to show our love for Dogtown, the birthplace of the impactful skateboarding that made us who we are today. Our educational sessions gave Audrey the confidence to apply to the LA2050 Grants Challenge and when she won a $25,000 grant from the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, we decided to launch a bootcamp to help more grant-fundable organization leaders like Audrey!
