The 2019 State of Grantseeking™ Survey
Why take part?
The State of Grantseeking™ Survey spotlights recent developments in funding so that organizations can be more strategic in their grantseeking.
The resulting – free – State of Grantseeking™ Reports, published in May and June, serve as valuable analytics tools for organizations to review their grantseeking efforts, report on performance, and plan for the future. The benchmarks suggest reasonable levels of funding to expect for an organization based on median awards by organizational budget and mission. This leading-edge information is key data for all organizations.
Please join thousands of others who find value in the reports and complete this survey to offer your insights for the upcoming report. The survey ends March 31, 2019.
Welcome to GrantStation
Do you spend hours every month getting budget reports ready for your board meeting? Do you put time into reentering and then manipulating data in Excel to get that "challenging" board member the report he wants? Do you manually generate donor thank you letters in Word? Are you double entering donations in QuickBooks and then again in another donor database that you don't really like or understand?
If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then this workshop is for you! We are very excited to have Gregg Bossen, CPA and president of QuickBooks Made Easy, deliver one of his most popular webinars exclusively for GrantStation.
Don't miss out on this great learning opportunity! This workshop on Tuesday, February 26, 2019, at 2 PM is for QuickBooks - Online Version.
Just as your organization cannot rely on just one or two funders, you also need to develop multiple types of revenue streams beyond grants. This webinar will offer proven ideas and techniques that will lead to more and larger giving from a broader range of donors.
Learn how to engage your board to maximize their potential and tap into their networks. Likewise, we'll explore what else volunteers can do for your organization. This webinar will benefit executive directors, board members, and all development staff who interact with donors and prospects.
This webinar is $69 for 90 minutes, held on Wednesday, February 27, 2019, at 2 PM EST.

The Lowdown on Shutdowns
by Kevin Peters
The recent government shutdown began shortly before Christmas and stretched through January 25. It was the longest shutdown in U.S. history.
But the difficulties might not be over. The government was recently reopened for only three weeks, and there is a chance it may shut down again at the close of that period. The president himself put the odds of the government remaining open at “less than “50-50.”
While government employees, contractors, and those relying on government services felt the brunt of the shutdown’s impact, its effects reached far, including into the nonprofit sector. How did the shutdown affect nonprofit agencies? What lessons can be learned? And how can those lessons be applied if it happens again? Read more
