Free Nonprofit Webinar: Why Build Relationships with Grantmakers?
This recorded course is brought to you by a GPA-approved trainer. Diane H. Leonard, GPC is one of only 20 GPA-approved trainers.
What is all the hype about relationships with grantmakers?
Why isn’t a well-written proposal *enough* to get the grant award?!
In this recorded webinar, we talk briefly about *why* relationships with grantmakers are important. We will share ways to learn if a grantmaker has the capacity to have relationships with potential grantees prior to submitting an award versus what their preference is for communication prior to an award.
We will also address the key role that your colleagues should play in the grant relationship outreach process and how to get them excited and engaged to help look for connections and make introductions to grantmakers.
