At some point in your grantseeking career you will experience rejection.

The sting of not securing a grant, especially after investing time and the collective efforts of your team, can feel disheartening and deeply personal.

During this TargetED, Alice Ruhnke will show you what to do when you don’t get funded. You’ll see how you can use these challenging experiences to improve your proposals in the future.

You’ll learn

  • the steps to take after you receive a rejection letter;
  • common mistakes that lead to rejections in the first place (and how you can avoid making them); and,
  • questions to ask to help you determine the best way to move forward.

You’ll walk away ready to turn rejection into an opportunity for growth so you can continue to help your organization fulfill its mission.

This session is perfect for grant professionals, executive directors, members of the development team, and nonprofit program staff looking to improve their grantseeking strategy.
