Government funding continues to grow tighter, and foundations are usually looked at as a source of one-time funding or a source of funding for a special project. But foundations can provide support for daily operations and overhead, if the right foundation is selected and the right approach is taken.
If you're like a lot of nonprofits these days, you're looking at foundations as a source of funding to make up for ever tightening federal support. And while seeking money from a foundation has its own challenges, foundations can be a source of funding support for general operating support, allowing nonprofits to continue successfully providing services to their community.
The most important thing to remember is that while foundations often prefer giving for specific projects, the myth that foundations simply will not give for general operating support is just that - a myth. If done correctly, you can win funding for overheads, salaries, and day-to-day operations that allow you to keep providing the services needed by your community, as well as expand services or extend your reach.
This webinar with expert speaker David Kittross will discuss how to win funding from foundations for general operating support such as overheads, salaries etc. and how to continue providing services to your community and even expand them.
