Event description

Description

Are you looking to grow your nonprofit's grant program in 2018? Fundraising is largely about approaching the right funders at the right time with the right proposal. But fundraising can’t happen in a vacuum. Organizations need a strong pipeline of funding prospects coupled with concrete cultivation strategies to turn prospect research into the dollars that will allow you to achieve your larger organization goals. At Elevate, each of our client teams build grant programs from the ground up – from initial prospect research to writing the first proposal. Now, we want to share our tricks of the trade.

This course is ideal for professionals who have completed our Grant Writing for Social Change workshop, development or fundraising managers, or grant writers new to big picture development strategy. In this training, you will:

  • Assess what type of funding will work best for your organization;

  • Build your toolkit of research resources and strategies to find the highest priority prospects first;

  • Develop a cultivation strategy for your organization; and

  • Learn about tools for tracking prospects and funder relationships over time.

Hear from Our Past Attendees:

"The Elevate staff was very knowledgeable about fundraising, the nonprofit world and beyond, and could answer any question. As a trained teacher, what impressed me the most was the large amount of hands-on practice appealing to different learning styles. I loved the exercise in which we created a grant proposal by posting parts of it on the walls. Also, discussing an insightful TED talk on nonprofits and fundraising was fascinating. As an aside, I really enjoyed going out to lunch during the workshop in the heart of Adams Morgan, and the convenience of getting there by bike, car or Metro."
- Federico E. Cura

“These folks are extremely skilled at empowering their trainees to become part of a world that may seem confusing or difficult to access. What was most transformative about my experience with Elevate was how clearly they illuminate the fact that grantwriting is a holistic process that does not begin or end at the proposal. No other training that I've taken on this subject spent as much time discussing research, program design, and reaching out to grantmakers as Elevate did.”
-Zosia Sztykowski, Collective Action for Safe Spaces
