Establishing a relationship with the District and the Office of Grant Development can only be beneficial to all parties. In some cases, such a relationship is required. For example, if you’re raising money for a school’s capital improvements or for a program that will directly involve students, you must have a legal agreement with the District.
But even if your project doesn’t require contacting the District of OGD, why not take advantage of our experience and best practice information? If your group is raising money for an after school sports program, for example, the team at the OGD may know of existing opportunities and will be able to share grantwriting best practices. We’ll also be able to connect you with the Office of Athletics for additional support.
For more information please contact our department to discuss your proposal.
