Plus, receive our gift to you, the free ePrimer: Intentional Grantseeking: Planning to Win
Cynthia M. Adams, Founder/CEO of GrantStation, shares her ideas about thinking strategically as you undertake your grantseeking efforts. She describes her step-by-step approach to building a strategy around each project or program that needs funding, and gives examples that will help clarify how this process can work for you!
State of Grantseeking
The Spring 2018 State of Grantseeking Reports are used by thousands of NPOs to assist them in establishing benchmarks and guiding their grantseeking strategies.
You are welcome to share these reports with your staff, board, and world. The reports by Annual Budget or by Mission Focus may be of most value at an individual NPO-level, as these reports are key to helping organizations set realistic grantseeking goals.
The need statement is arguably the most important part of a grant proposal. Uncover the most effective methods for documenting the need, as well as ways to use that information to engage the reader, by joining GrantStation's CEO, Cynthia Adams, for this webinar. Ms. Adams will share how to call attention to the problem or need facing your organization or community, and how to take that information and create a sense of urgency so the grantmaker feels compelled to act now.
