week 6 Discussion Questions
Discussion Board 6.1
Identify a need within your previously selected organization.This will be the topic of a mock proposal to a foundation.This idea should have a positive impact on your organization and should cost somewhere between $2000 and $75000.This must be something that either isnt currently being funded in your organization or for which the funding is insufficient.Try to identify something that does not require ongoing funding (like a staff position).Many foundations wont fund staff positions as they dont intend to provide ongoing funding.Possible examples include:Supplies for foster kids a van for a program a public relations campaign updating computers iPads for staff training for staff/volunteers tutors for teens funds for summer activities for teens new furniture in a shelter etc.This idea cannot be an event.An event is a funding source but is not a topic for a proposal to a foundation.Include the link to the organizations website.

Discussion Board 6.2
Now that you have your idea think about the key points of this project. This section should provide a funder with a vision of what you are planning to do with their money. These ideas will become a section of the proposal the Project Description. What will need to happen? Who will do it? Will things need to be purchased? How will you identify the seller? Think about this in a sequential manner. Post to the Discussion Board.
