Project Details

What We Need
  • Research into ideal funder profile(s) and list of sources
  • Development of a list of prospects (up to 15) that fit that ideal funder profile, including contact information when applicable and list of sources
  • Recommendations on areas for further exploration/research
Additional Details

We need help researching grants that support assistive technology programs. We provide tech support to the individuals supported by Lifehouse as well as give some people devices like a computer or an iPad to improve their quality of life. We're looking for help to find as many grants as possible that look like they'd support this type of grant request.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a list of grants we've previously applied for, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a dedicated staff member for this project, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,494 , allowing us to continue to support our various programs and services for people with developmental disabilities in Marin, Sonoma, and San Francisco counties.

This project will hopefully lead us to getting a grant, increasing the funding for the Tech Center and allowing us to provide the people we support with more technology that can improve their quality of life.
