Nonprofit organizations often seek grant support for their new or existing programs, capital campaigns, capacity-building efforts, equipment purchases, research, or special projects but fall short in receiving an award. Competition for grants from foundations and corporations continues to grow as government funding dwindles. Learn how to identify grant opportunities for your organization as well as prepare proposals that get the attention of grantmakers. This workshop provides not only tools and resources but also a proposal outline to prepare comprehensive, concise, and competitive grant applications.
The entire Principles of Fundraising series of five workshops are specifically designed for novice to intermediate fund development personnel, executive directors, board members, volunteers, and those considering starting a nonprofit organization. Grants from Foundations and Corporations is the third session of a five-part series.
The Principles of Fundraising was developed by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Connecticut Chapter in 2008. Now in its 12th year, this program continues to provide high-caliber, basic-skills development in the art and science of fundraising for nonprofits through five introductory-level, half-day workshops focusing on theory and practice taught by members of AFP who are experts in their respective fields. All of the workshops are designed to help new and established nonprofit organizations raise money more effectively and efficiently.
This session is hosted by the Connecticut Community Foundation. Register for one or all five of the workshops in the AFP Connecticut Chapter’s Principles of Fundraising program today!
