Analyze Foundation, Government, and Research Grants


For this week’s assignment, create a voice-over PowerPoint presentation that explains the following information for five to seven foundations grantors and five to seven government grantors. Assume you are presenting to key decision makers for a foundation, government, or research granting agency.

Include the following in your presentation:

  • Name each foundation, government, or research entity.
  • Provide the mission statement of the foundation, government, or research entity.
  • Examine the details of each entity (length of time in existence, the total amount of funds granted, and/or a total number of programs funded).
  • If available, provide a list of programs funded by the foundation, government, or research entity over the last three years.
  • Explain the process of application (e.g., letter of inquiry, full proposal, letter of interest, letter of intent to apply).

Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists and should cite material appropriately. Add audio to each slide using the Media section of the Insert tab in the top menu bar for each slide.

Be sure to reference your selected foundations and government grantors. You may include other resources, but it is not required.
