- The opportunity to spend five days with experts in the field of grant writing, project development and non-profit management.
- A completed project plan, funding proposal, and two-page proposal letter, ready to submit to funders.
- A resource packet of potential funders, with training on how to source additional funders and how to contact and follow-up to develop true partnerships with donors.
- A community of other non-profits in your area or your cause, with whom you can collaborate and share resources and ideas.
- The opportunity to give a group of interested funders an in-person “elevator pitch.”
If you’re interested in attending a Funding Forum training please let us know. We work with funders to underwrite the training costs and will be glad to put your organization on the list of possible attendees at future workshops.
If you know of other non-profits in your area that need or would like to attend a sponsored workshop, please help us spread the word by passing along our site.
Here’s how it works:
- Workshops have 30 or 100 non-profits attending. All participants leave the training with a completed proposal, two-page proposal letter, and strategic plan for locating funders. They’re energized, empowered and ready to find support for their programs.
- All participants may represent the same focus issue (i.e., every project working on different aspects of teen pregnancy prevention: Planned Parenthood, high school parenting classes, teen employment programs, nutrition education, child care centers, adult schools, substance abuse programs).
- All participants may represent different community issues (i.e. Parks and Recreation, substance abuse clinics, animal shelters, waste management solutions, county jails, child care centers, area churches).
