Hi. I’m am recent been starting look for grants for our team to prepare for the upcoming year and I was wondering if there were any resources I could use or methods to search for sponsorships and grants? Thanks!
Pretty much all of our sponsors are local or big companies with a local presence. [this is pretty common, yes?] I would start by looking for local (offices of) companies with some relationship to STEM<1> or manufacturing. Your local Chamber of Commerce or economic development office might be a jumping off point. Also the companies that employ the parents of team members is another “in”.
<1> But think broader too. Our longest-term sponsor is a local tour bus company who has been incredibly supportive.
