What You Will Learn from this Recorded Nonprofit Webinar

  • How to form and facilitate a new nonprofit grant team;
  • How to engage your colleagues as part of the grant team;
  • How to identify which tools to use for your grant team when communicating annual grant calendars, grant strategy, and grant seeking progress;
  • How to facilitate a nonprofit grant team during pre-planning of applications; and
  • How to utilize the grant team for a mock review process.

After you have gained skills and confidence with the writing elements of nonprofit grant writing, it is time to focus on engaging your colleagues to take your success to the next level. 

In “How to Master Grant Calendars, Grant Strategy, and Grant Teams,” we will help you identify the *right* members of your grant team, select and use tools that help you efficiently share the most relevant information with the grant team, and create a plan for facilitating your organization’s grant team and annual grant strategy.

Grant writing is NOT a solo sport. You are not a grant team island! You do have a grant team within your organization, the team just may not know it. They include the colleagues that providing information to help you write a successful application, the colleagues that help manage the proposal once funded, and the colleagues that help manage financial billings once awarded. You need to bring them together as a grant team and engage them in your grant calendar and grant strategy discussions to maximize your organization’s grant seeking success.

In this nonprofit webinar recording we will look at the organizational culture around grant seeking and how having an identified grant team can help strengthen that culture and your organization’s grant seeking success.
