Event description

Description

Grant writing is more than just grants. To compete with other organizations for ever-tightening philanthropic dollars and give your organization a winning edge, you will need a sound and well developed fundraising program. If your organization is new to fundraising, or needs to strengthen its current program, then this workshop is for you. In this high-level course, you will:

  • Assess your organization's readiness for fundraising

  • Ascertain the relationship between branding and fundraising

  • Review the elements of effective fundraising and strategic plans

  • Explore various types of revenue streams

  • Understand the differences between corporate, foundation, and government grants

  • Grasp the Do's and Dont's of grantwriting

  • Gain expert knowledge on how funders select winning applications

  • Know what to do once you've been awarded or denied the grant

  • Become familiar with the Moves Management process

  • Learn effective digital, online, and social media fundraising strategies

This is the first of a four part series diving deep into grant writing, funding, and management in the non-profit world. We can't wait for you to join us. Come to one or all at your convenience.
