Participating in Grant Maker Relationships 101: How to Get Started” will teach you how to establish relationships with new grant makers *BEFORE* submitting an application. Relationships are as critical a component of the grant seeking process as they are with individual donors, but are often overlooked.

Yes, it is possible for well-written proposals to be funded without first reaching out to a new potential grant maker, but the success rates are significantly higher for those who establish a relationship prior to submission.

In this live, interactive webinar we will discuss how to establish and then maintain relationships with grant makers in order to sustain and increase your organization’s grant revenue. We will walk through unique success stories from several nonprofits as case studies to show how relationships can be started.

Participating in Grant Maker Relationships 101: How to Get Startedwill strengthen your grant funder relationship building efforts and ultimately your grant funding success.
