The Resource Development Office supports departments and schools to leverage local, regional and national resources to secure public and private grant funds and donations that advance the district’s Strategic Framework and fundraising priorities.

We achieve this through:

  • Grant Development Services – project managing the grant development process, grant writing and editing, budget development, internal review process
  • Facilitating the Grant Workflow Process – supporting individuals and teams through MMSD's grant vetting and review process, proposal feedback and light editing
  • Providing Information on Grant Opportunities – identifying and announcing funding opportunities
  • Fundraising - coordinating strategic fundraising efforts
