Navigating the process of finding, writing, and obtaining grants can be challenging and overwhelming for many nonprofits. It can also be highly rewarding. Some nonprofit leaders don’t attempt to pursue grants because they are intimidated by the process or they don’t feel like they have the proper tools or experience. Looking at a grant application may make you feel like you need to understand a whole different language. But applying for a grant doesn’t have to be scary.
Whether you are a beginner at grant writing, or you’ve been doing it for a while, this advanced webinar can help you learn how to research, write, and obtain grants for your nonprofit organization. We will look at the different types of grants, how nonprofits might consider applying for them, and what it takes to write them. For the purpose of this webinar, we will focus on foundation and corporate grants as opposed to state and federal grants. We’ll also look at some of the benefits of hiring a grant writer or using a grant writing service so you can decide if either of those options would be right for your organization.
During this webinar we discuss:
- Philanthropic dollars and where they come from
