Webinar Spotlight:
Matchmaker, Matchmaker: Meeting the Challenge of a Matching Grant

WebinarAfter many years of small grants from the Food First Foundation, your organization was finally awarded a $100,000 grant towards the renovation of your soup kitchen. But wait, there's a catch. It's not an outright gift. The Food First Foundation will "match" each dollar your organization raises, up to $100,000. The cost of the renovation is $200,000. If you can do this, you've got it made. What's your strategy?

In this webinar Ruthellen Rubin will explore the most common types of matching grants, how to cultivate and solicit matching grants, what you need to consider before you accept the grant, how this impacts your annual fundraising, and the ways a grant of this type can build sustainable partnerships. This webinar will not only help you maximize the potential of your matching grant opportunity, it will also help bolster your overall grants strategy. The webinar is a great introduction to this topic for novice development staff as well as an inspiring refresher for the seasoned development professional. This webinar will be held on Tuesday, January 20, 2015.

About Ruthellen Rubin:

Ruthellen Rubin

For the last ten years I have enjoyed facilitating educational workshops, seminars and classes for nonprofit professionals specializing in the art of fundraising.

Whether it's been a large lecture setting at a conference, a medium sized workshop at the Support Center or a masters class at New York University, the most rewarding aspect for me has always been when the participants can share their experiences and take inspiration from one another.
