If you have been in the grantseeking space for a while, you’ve probably had stakeholders approach you with a grant application and say, “We need to apply for this…”
However, it’s important that you don’t apply to every opportunity simply because it might be a good fit. Submitting a proposal requires time and human capital, which means the return on investment for different funding opportunities is not always worth the costs.
In order to take your grant strategy to the next level, you need to identify and prioritize the opportunities that have the highest return on investment.
During this webinar, Cynthia Adams, GrantStation’s Founder and Corporate Advisor, and Alice Ruhnke, GrantStation’s President, will show you how to create a customized Decision Making Matrix that can help your nonprofit determine the best funding opportunities to pursue.
- how to identify criteria to make decisions;
- how to weigh criteria;
- how to overcome application guidelines that consistently knock you out of the running; and,
- how to use the results to build consensus and direction.
You’ll leave ready to develop a process that is objective and clear to all stakeholders so when new funding opportunities arise, you already have a system in place to determine the best approach for your organization.
This session is perfect for nonprofit leaders, development staff, program staff, and consultants who are seeking the highest return on investment from their grantseeking program.

GrantStation's Founder and Corporate Advisor, Cynthia M. Adams has spent the past 40 years helping nonprofit organizations raise the money needed to do their good work. Many of her early efforts centered on raising funds to set aside wilderness areas in Alaska. In 1990 she started her first company, the Alaska Funding Exchange. This endeavor served as the testing ground for a national company, GrantStation, which opened its Internet doors in the fall of 2001. Cindy built this business because she believes that grantseeking requires a thorough understanding of the variety and scope of grantmakers and sound knowledge of the philanthropic playing field. Her life's work has been to level that playing field, creating an opportunity for all nonprofit organizations to access the wealth of grant opportunities across the U.S. and throughout the world.
