Guessing Strategically – Getting grants
Last week eDOT all got together in Kandern and started a time we were calling strategic guessing. I wrote a blog about why we called it that, so if you want to check that out go ahead and come back here when you are done.
Our goals were to discuss the past year and look forward to the next trying to see where God is leading us and what possible projects He has been placing on our hearts. All of us came out of the week with our own action plan. Mine included a few projects and I would like to take a couple blogs to share what those projects will be. The first project I will be working on is getting grants for eDOT and the other projects we are working on.
Being a technology mission we have many reasons why keeping up to date with the current technology is important. Do we need to own every new piece of technology? No, not really, but sometimes we do need to upgrade our equipment. Do we need to attend every conference or take courses to continue learning about current technologies and techniques? Also no, but again, we do need to be keeping up to date so we aren’t using something way out of date like someone using an abacus to do math in college right now. Money is needed and grants are a great way for us to get some assistance with specific projects.
My job in this project will be to research some grants that fit our current or potential projects and then pass it off to the people skilled at writing the grants.
Here is where I could use some help. Anyone have any resources or connections that could help us find some grants?
