Event Description

Analyze Private Funding Opportunities that Fund Programs for Education, Health and Child Welfare.

The intersection between the world of philanthropy and the federal funding stream is changing dramatically. President Trump has proposed substantial changes in federal funding, cutting deeply into many programs.

In Trump’s budget request for Fiscal Year 2018, which begins on Oct. 1, many of the federal funding programs that grant seekers depends on, would see substantial reductions or could be eliminated altogether. Programs, like the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, have a distinguished funding track record, and help a great many people and distribute lots of money in grants.

Although Congress has yet to embrace those deep reductions, it has created considerable uncertainty within the grant seeking community. Rather than handwringing, you should consider diversification. Now is the perfect time to expand your horizons, broaden your reach and look more thoroughly at alternate funding sources—the private funders.

Keep in mind that there are roughly more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations registered in the U.S. These include 1.5 million public charities, 100,796 private foundations and 370,180 other types of nonprofit organizations.

Everyone needs to keep in mind that private grant-making organizations dispense about $335 billion per year. The impact of these organizations is enormous. The United Way has 1,200 offices located in every state and virtually every congressional district and works with 37,300 partner agencies across the country.

So, are you worried about federal funding for those recreation programs? Did you know that the U.S. Soccer Foundation will open its summer funding cycle next month? Concerned over the potential loss of federal school cafeteria support? The Whole Kids Foundation, a giving effort of Whole Foods Market grocery store chain, has a range of childhood nutrition giving programs.

In this webinar, expert speaker Frank Klimko will help you get started on the path to seek private funding streams that will give you the money you need to support your programs. Frank will focus on funding for education, health and child welfare programs.

He will assist nonprofits in positioning themselves for successful fundraising. Frank will cover funding for everything from education to health care to nutrition and recreation. He will provide useful tips on knowing where to look for funding as well as what types of partnerships are needed.  You will also get to know about the new federal budget.

Because grant writing is a tough job, a portion of the webinar will be reserved for a special “Shake the Money Tree” section. It will show you how to prepare, format and burnish a grants applications to get the funding that you need to make your programs grow. You will be provided with the tools to be successful, stand out from the crowd and connect with the federal/private funding streams.
