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.

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.
Grant seeking is a tough job, and the competition is cutthroat. Behind the lofty public goals lie your basic needs – from making payroll to buying equipment and paying the light bill. And to get funding, you should know how to stand out from the crowd and connect with the many available private funding streams. The problem with well-known funders is that they already have long lines outside their doors. You can, however, network with the right people, jump on the bandwagon early, and make all the right moves to succeed – but how?
You’ll figure that out by attending this webinar by industry veteran Frank Klimko, who will teach you how to tap into the power donor networks that are changing the philanthropic landscape of the 21st century. In this session, Klimko will focus on how to find funding from foundations that are run by women – and those that specifically fund programs to support women and girls.
Learn how to make your mission, your organization, and yourself, as attractive as possible to potential donors. This webinar will equip you with all the tools and the information you need on how to stand out from the crowd, connect with the many private funding streams most people don’t know about, and succeed. Surviving in the nonprofit world doesn’t have to be a brutal experience, and Klimko will show you how.
Get an up-close view of the six major funding trends, including exciting new women’s funding networks like Women Moving Millions (WMM) – a network of 240 donors who have all given at least $1 million to support good work. And arm yourself with the techniques and strategies to successfully pursue these funds. Learn how to find your ‘Best Bets’, and how to write a successful proposal by including the “inside information” foundations want to see before awarding funds.
You will learn how to make a strong case for your project, and how to avoid the red flags – a.k.a. fatal mistakes – that foundations look for. Klimko will demonstrate with example how to successfully apply for funds, and conclude with a useful Q&A session where you can ask questions or get help on how to find funding for your project.
After attending this webinar, you will be able to write a successful proposal and maximize your chances of getting the funding you need.
