Working collaboratively with local and state governments could be a win-win situation for your organization. 

Now is arguably one of the best times to develop these relationships because local governments often take responsibility for the burdensome federal financial reporting and audit requirements, which means you can focus your efforts on the ground to help those most in need.

However, partnering with any level of government can feel intimidating to nonprofit organizations, especially those without much experience. 

During this TargetED, GrantStation’s President, Alice Ruhnke, and Jennifer Piercy, the Economic Development Director in Senator Shelly Moore Capito’s office, will show you the steps and resources you need to create these impactful relationships and grow your organization!

This TargetED will cover:

  • the steps you need to take to partner with local and state governments;
  • how to use your organization’s deep knowledge of community needs, reach, and existing relationships;
  • “real world” examples of successful partnerships; and,
  • recommendations for putting theory into action. 

You’ll walk away with an understanding of how to position your organization to maximize public benefits.

TargetEDs are designed with beginners in mind. This session contains 30 minutes of practical teaching and 15 minutes of Q&A with Alice and Jennifer. It’s perfect for any member of a nonprofit organization seeking to create relationships with local and state governments.
