Grants should only be one part of your funding plans, but they can be well worth the time commitment required if cultivated correctly. Often grants, especially matching grants, can help leverage your hard work to increase sustainability, making them an ideal funding stream for long-term growth. While much of the process is the same, matching grants do require a bit more preparation than a traditional grant proposal.

In this webinar, Amanda Pearce of Funding for Good, Inc. will identify the benefits of matching grants and discuss how to incorporate them into your fundraising plans. While talking to foundation staff can be daunting, it is a vital piece of successful proposal writing. How do you empower foundation donors to donate more AND become advocates for your cause? This webinar will cover how to communicate with donors that their immediate support could lay the foundation for long-term sustainability and success for your organization.

This webinar will:

  • break down the key components of “sustainability planning”;
  • explain how matching grants are a useful tool in creating long-term sustainability;
  • offer quick tips for including a capacity building component into every proposal or appeal;
  • provide effective communication strategies to engage and retain foundation donors; and,
  • identify the top three things that can be leveraged for matching grants.

All nonprofits professionals and volunteers will benefit from attending this webinar.
