Frank Klimko edits Children & Youth Funding Report, a Washington DC area-based publication which covers Congress, the Education Dept. and the various federal regulatory agencies. It is a national publication that is updated daily on the web site. He also edits Private Grants Alert, which covers the world of private philanthropy. Klimko is a veteran journalist with more than 30 years experience covering federal, state and local government. In California, he worked on a Pulitzer-prize nominated newspaper investigative project. He is an expert on the federal Freedom of Information Act.
A nationally known speech writer/speaker, Klimko co-produces monthly audio-conferences that provide an insiders view to federal regulations, new billion-dollar spending projects and grant making priorities. The audio conferences have helped hundreds of listeners better position themselves for funding, burnish their applications and get a firmer grip on the federal/private money tree.
As federal funding becomes less certain and an improved economy begins yielding greater private sector philanthropy, nonprofits and local agencies must have the insights that will help them win a share of the billions of dollars corporate givers make available each year. One of the fastest growing trends in corporate support is employee-driven philanthropy that enables employees at hundreds of companies to support organizations and causes that matter most to them. Because a growing number of businesses are using incentives to encourage employee involvement in charitable endeavors, organizations like yours are now in position to access their substantial resources.
It’s part of a growing trend also known as the Effective Altruism movement or ‘doing good better.’ But, many don’t know about such giving or think that employee matching funding is dead. Not true. In fact nearly $10 billion of corporate matching donations are left on the table annually. Many grants seekers don’t know that workplace giving has evolved. This is the time to get tuned in. Winter is a busy time for corporate giving and we will show you how to get on the philanthropic bandwagon early and stay in line for those corporate dollars. Workplace giving and employee engagement are alive and evolving at a very rapid pace.
Join expert speaker Frank Klimko to learn how to get started, how to stay engaged, and how to bring home the bucks at the end of the day. The session will also include a useful Q&A section that will allow participants to ask questions or get help in finding the funding they need.
