Funding for Faith-Based Organizations

Webinar Prices

As a faith-based organization, you may assume that your organization isn't eligible for funds from government or private funders, but this is not necessarily the case.

If you provide community-based services which grow out of a faith teaching but are secular in nature (e.g. feeding the hungry or housing the homeless), then you may be eligible for funding from nonreligious grantmakers.

However, it can be challenging to understand how to align your activities with the diverse requirements of different funders.

During this 90-minute webinar, Alice Ruhnke will help you understand the types of funding your organization may be eligible for and how to approach funders.

You’ll learn how to:

  • identify funding opportunities from federal, state, and foundation sources that align with your organization's mission using GrantStation;
  • craft compelling needs statements with data from the American Community Survey and other reputable sources;
  • incorporate evidence-based practices into your program to show the effectiveness of your work; and,
  • incorporate new technology and tools which can streamline your processes, enhance your efficiency, and improve your proposal's overall quality.

This webinar is designed for novice grantseekers within faith-based organizations looking to establish and enhance their grantseeking programs.
