  3. How to start? • Ask for what you need Ask within your organization and work outwards • Keep your ears to the ground Look for opportunities – not for grants • Think outside the box Break what you need into components or Make it a component of a bigger project

  4. Where to start? • Depends on the type of organization • How were similar projects funded? • Is there a grant person you can contact? • Are there potential partner groups? Now: Search for grants through other resources
