As the pandemic persists, many foundations are bending traditional grant-making rules and moving money faster – and with fewer restrictions – to buoy nonprofits struggling to meet greater demands and stay afloat.
How can you tap into grant makers’ generosity and secure support to weather this crisis?
Join us for a 75-minute session to learn from three grant makers who are providing emergency and general-operating support in response to Covid-19:
- Mara Williams Low, program director at the Sobrato Family Foundation
- Patricia McIlreavy, CEO, Center for Disaster Philanthropy
- Jessamyn Shams-Lau, co-chief executive officer, Peery Foundation
These decision makers will offer guidance on how nonprofits can convey need while also emphasizing strengths. They’ll share tips on how nonprofits can demonstrate financial transparency, resiliency, and sustainability despite hardship, uncertainty, and economic distress.
Plus, they’ll offer advice on how to:
- Find emergency grants
- Evaluate grant makers to determine those most likely to support your operations
- Craft an effective case for support
What you’ll learn:
- How to build a strong case for general operating support anytime – but especially amid the pandemic
- Ways to convey need while demonstrating financial transparency and organizational strength
- Tips for finding emergency grants – even if your nonprofit is not on the front lines of the response
