How We Work
Specifically focused on international and domestic funding for projects that increase young peoples’ and underserved populations’ access to information and civic dialogue via cultural gatherings, community events, and creative workshops.
The director of development operations for Novaturient monitor’s opportunities posted through the government grants website. The goal is building teams with independent contractors in order to create strong proposals for applications capturing funding opportunities.
Through Novaturient Workshops, non-profit organizations are first sought out and invited to collaborate and bid on grant applications that are a good fit. Once the application is accepted by the US government, Novaturient team duties are to manage and monitor the workshop until completion.
The awarded non-profit organizations automatically receive 10% of the captured funding. They also have the option to be actively involved in the execution of the workshop, or a pass-through organization earning 10%, plus administrative costs to umbrella the workshop. The independent contractor benefits from being part of a creative team that focuses on increasing awareness for underserved populations around the world.
