Show Me The Money!

Grants are great, but they aren't necessarily the best way for a nonprofit to raise money – especially new nonprofits.

This presentation will explore where nonprofits get their funding and challenge you to rethink where your organization gets yours.

This informative session will help you understand the effectiveness of some popular fundraising activities – and help you evaluate your own.

TARGET AUDIENCE Nonprofit Staff, Board Members, and Volunteers
EXPERIENCE LEVEL Any
FORMAT Online, Live
DURATION 1-1.5 Hours

Participant Outcomes

You can expect to learn things like:

  • Where do nonprofits get their funding?
  • How do grants fit in the "big picture?"
  • How does your nonprofit compare to other like-sized nonprofits?
    That is, where do they get their funding?
  • What are the most effective fundraising activities? The least effective?

All participants will also receive an easy-to-use fundraising activity checklist. This checklist will help you evaluate the effectiveness of your current fundraising activities and identify ways to raise more money.
