GASP - Grantseekers Anxiety Support Program


Grantseekers Anxiety Support Program (GASP) helps new and intermediate grantseekers (0-3 year’s experience) build confidence and skill in their work. It also provides information for newer development and executive directors and grants managers.


GASP is an opportunity:

 ▪     To gain an overview of and practical details on topics of interest in the grant

       seeking process.

 ▪      To gain an overview of institutional funding in particular fields.

 ▪      To develop new professional relationships and advance careers.

 ▪      To share in-process proposals with peers and “mentors” who offer

        feedback—when announced.


Program Date:  Quarterly


Offered in San Francisco  and other East Bay locations (see program information).






Presented by Development Executives Roundtable (DER)


GASP is offered at no-cost to participants



 Demystifying Financial Attachments


Wednesday, August 26, 2015 


4:00 - 6:00 PM



Foundation Center

312 Sutter Street, Ste. 606

San Francisco, CA 94108


To Register:


Most grantmakers request organizational financial attachments with proposals. These detailed, multi-page, and number-laden documents can be very confusing to anyone lacking financial and accounting knowledge, and one may be stressed if a grantmaker calls and questions some data. This interactive and informative session will help demystify these documents, in particular the IRS Form 990, an audited financial statement, and an organizational budget. We will explore what grantmakers look for in these documents and what “red flags” might jeopardize an otherwise worthy grant application. Attendees will come away from the session with a greater degree of confidence when presenting and discussing these documents. Attendees are encouraged to bring their organizational 990, audit and budget. While attendees will not be asked to share these documents, we will be referring to specific sections so it will be easier to follow the discussions if attendees have the documents to review. To register, go to www.dersf.org.
