Grant writing and fundraising for technology funding can make both big and small tech projects possible. This helps ensure you have the technology to support your daily needs and are able to fulfill your mission. However, it can be a confusing and frustrating process, and it can be hard to understand what funders want and how to convince them of the need for tech funding within your project.

She addresses an issue that many nonprofits face: technology needs often do not fall neatly into a funding program. This can make it difficult to find funding for the technology you need, whether for your organization's infrastructure or a specific project. Laura provides some tips and best practices to help you organize your budget and present your application in a way that is compatible with the funding programs you're applying to.
This video is the first in a two-part series of grant tips from Laura S. Quinn. Part two focuses on writing technology proposals, and can be found on the blog.
