WEBINAR: The Perfect Match (recording)

(GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Event Type: Webinar
Category: Educational Seminar

Webinar Date: 01/25/2012
Webinar Time: 2:00PM-3:00PM EST

The top reasons grantmakers reject proposals are the request falls outside of grantmaker program interest areas and the proposal does not follow guidelines. Learn how to avoid these common pitfalls and be more efficient and effective in grant seeking. Make the shift from shotgun and opportunistic approaches to strategic grant seeking by adopting carefully targeted approaches to those funders most likely to make an award to your organization or project. Strategic grant seeking lessens staff burnout, improves funder relations, and avoids wasting time and resources on non-competitive proposals.

Proposal competitiveness rests on the degree of funder-project match. In this interactive session, participants will learn essential strategies and tools to:
• Identify and manage a solid and realistic pool of potential funders
• Rate and prioritize potential funders to ensure maximum return on investment
• Understand and fully respond to funder program priorities and procedures
• Go beyond the grantmaker mission statement to assess and capitalize on the degree of match between the funder and project
• Use the research process to build relationships with funders

Registrants will have the opportunity to email prospecting challenges prior to the webinar.
