Although I develop training for volunteer programs, I'm not an expert on locating funding for nonprofit projects. I would recommend, however, getting in touch with educational institutions, where they be academic teaching programs or local schools who are doing innovative work in the community. Set up meetings and start asking questions -- Is there a market for this approach? How could we get this off the ground? Who else in the community is doing similar work? Is there any room for partnership?

The other option is to simply create the training, get it up on your website, and start promoting it though through digital marketing channels, including social media.

In today's world, no one needs permission to create, however, getting funding to do so is another story. So, you have to believe in what you have to offer and be willing to put in the sweat to make it happen, whether the grants come along or not.
