A Guide to Surviving in a Breathlessly Tight Giving Environment

With the federal funding pie likely to shrink substantially next year, these are breathless times for grant seekers looking to maintain their funding streams. Federal funding could slip below levels not seen for a generation. Under the new administration, federal funding for grant seekers has been reduced, however, all is not lost.

Typically, foundations are considered a safety net or source of one-time funding for a capital or special project. But foundations are much, much more. The right funder, approached in the right way, can provide support for daily operations and overhead, and thus provide ongoing sustenance even in this new, harsh giving environment. While seeking money from a foundation has its own challenges, foundations can be a source of funding support for general operations, allowing nonprofits to continue successfully providing services to their community. You should be looking at foundations as a source of funding for your non-profit, to make up for ever tightening federal support.

This webinar with expert speaker Frank Klimko will help start you on the path to seek private funding streams that will give you the money you need to support your programs. Frank will focus on how you can find operating funding, and will give you the tools to help you be successful, stand out from the crowd and connect with the many available private funding streams.
