In this four-part series we cover the steps to take to build a sustainable Corporate Solicitations Program (CSP). The first course focuses on corporate giving trends, and how to leverage those trends when asking for support. The second course is a step-by-step tutorial on how to build or enhance your CSP. The third training is all about how to identify the best businesses to approach for support, as well as how to build a custom recognition package. And the final training focuses on how to develop the request for support, be it through a formal written application, email, phone, or face-to-face meeting. There are lots of examples provided in these trainings. For those of you who are already experienced, we hope you learn something new in each training. For those of you just starting out, this is a great beginner’s course. These modules can be taken together to methodically build your organization’s capacity to raise funds from local businesses or as stand-alone learning opportunities.
Whether you need to build a grantseeking strategy for a particular project, or to develop an overarching strategy for the year, this set of trainings will guide you through the process. We start by helping you build your own screening tool: the RFP Decision Matrix. Adopting this matrix will help you make fast, accurate decisions about which funders you should apply to, and which ones you should not. The second training helps you prepare for doing your grants research, which opens the door to our third training focusing on the five steps for successful grants research. This series ends with a fairly intensive training on building a grantseeking strategy. These modules can be taken together to methodically guide your organization’s capacity to build a grants strategy or as stand-alone learning opportunities.
