Nonprofits need to do much more than write strong proposals to attract the support of foundations. They must know how to find grant opportunities, track results to demonstrate effectiveness, fulfill all reporting requirements, and target grants that match a group's mission and strengths.
Join The Chronicle of Philanthropy for a 90-minute session that will walk you through the grant life cycle, showing you each step from applying for grants to providing financial reports and other data foundations expect at the conclusion of a project.
Debbie DiVirgilio, a veteran grants consultant, will explain how to increase the odds of getting a grant by using public data to tie your mission to critical needs, collecting facts and figures that show your results, and building partnerships to raise the profile of your organization.
She also will share real-world examples of winning proposals that clearly tie a nonprofit's mission to the fulfillment of a pressing need. And she'll explain how a grant-seeking plan can increase your productivity.
*Bonus: Webinar Registrants will also receive a copy of The Chronicle's Grant Seeking 101: A Quick Reference Guide
