The Rochester Area Foundation provides financial and administrative support to nonprofit organizations in the greater Rochester area and 5 surrounding counties. This includes funding opportunities through cycle grants, donor-advised funds and shareholder funds. Application forms and instructions are available on the RAF website, but this hands-on workshop will be led by Foundation staff to clarify requirements, describe how your application will be evaluated, answer your questions, and assist you through the grant application process. Participants are welcome to bring a lunch and pitch their idea to the Foundation’s grant officer to assist in making a stronger request.
