IFC 2017

As spring blossoms beckon the arrival of summer, you may be contemplating a trip to Europe. Why not beat the summer crowds and combine business with pleasure by attending the International Fundraising Congress (IFC) 2017 in the Netherlands from October 17th to the 20th? This year’s conference, hosted by The Resource Alliance, includes speakers from UNHCR, UNICEF, the International Rescue Committee, and more. In addition to keynotes, masterclasses, workshops, Power Hour, and Big Room Sessions, the conference offers well-being sessions (think yoga and meditation) as well as a closing gala.

State of Grantseeking

State of Grantseeking

Think about your total grant funding during the last six months of 2016. Respondents to the Spring 2017 State of Grantseeking Survey reported a median award total of $80,000, a $2,750 increase from the median award total in the Fall 2016 Report. Just over half of the respondents (51%) reported total awards of more than $100,000.

Now think about the largest source of your total grant funding. Spring 2017 Survey respondents most frequently reported private foundations, the Federal government, and state government as the largest source of total grant funding. Private foundations (39%) were reported as the largest source of total funding at a rate over twice that of the next most frequently reported total funding source, the Federal government (18%).

Compared to the Fall 2016 Report, there was an increase in the rate of the largest source of total funding from private foundations (3%), community foundations (13%), corporations (22%), and the Federal government (6%). There was a decrease in the rate of funding by state government (14%), local government (13%), and “other” sources (17%).

To learn more about how your organization compares to other grantseeking organizations, look for our free reports to be published in May 2017. The State of Grantseeking™ reports spotlight recent developments in funding and can serve as a guide to assist you in your own grantseeking efforts.
