It’s a vicious cycle. Program costs and salaries continue to rise. Nonprofits struggle to operate within budget and retain talented staff, but grant makers don’t often support “overhead” or increase their giving, even as expenses go up each year.
Yet experts say nonprofits shouldn’t be shy about talking about their need for operational support or larger grants.
How can leaders make a compelling case for general-operating support while positioning their organizations as strong and sustainable?
Join us for a 75-minute webinar to learn from a grant-seeking expert and a program officer how to demonstrate organizational strength and sustainability — to secure unrestricted support for your mission.
They’ll explain key elements of a successful proposal, ways to speak the language of grant makers, and tools to help you make a strong case for investment. Plus, they’ll share real-word examples of success, how to respond when you don’t receive a grant.
- Essential elements to include in a successful proposal
- Smart ways to interact with grant makers
- Key organizational characteristics foundations look for in grantees
