July Café: Grantwriting for Business (yes, you heard that right) and Nonprofits
Grants for businesses from the government do exist, but they are very limited in scope. The Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs will be discussed at our July Café.
Grants for the nonprofit community will also be covered, including how to use library resources to find funders and write the best proposal possible.

Also participating in the discussion will be Kassy Rodeheaver, the Grants & Nonprofit Info Center Librarian for the Pima County Public Library. Prior to working at the library, she worked at University of Arizona Foundation in their Foundation Development office researching, writing, and editing grant proposals to private grantmakers.
