What’s Your World Like?

Please contribute your experience to the 2021 annual
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. This year we have a special section specific to the pandemic and its effect on your world.

The resulting—free—State of Grantseeking reports, published in May and June, serve as valuable analytic 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 State of Grantseeking reports. Complete this survey by March 31, 2021, to offer your insights for the upcoming report.

But between managing your kids’ Zoom education, cooking endlessly, and serving your constituents, there never seems to be enough time. Fret not. You can gain valuable insights by checking out these eight podcasts for nonprofit professionals, any of which can become part of your new daily routine.
