I’m nominating Alice S. for “Fundraiser of the Year.”
In any given year, grantmaking foundations in the United States award BILLIONS of dollars to nonprofit organizations.
If you want to increase your chances of receiving some of those funds, consider thinking of foundations as individual donor prospects.
I have the wonderful opportunity to learn from our clients and their volunteers across the country. The wonderful balance of staff and volunteer engagement makes this work rich and rewarding.
A big part of what I do with my non-profit clients is help them to develop and refine their case for support? What’s a “case?” It’s simply a collection of compelling reasons (both data and stories) as to why an organization is worthy of support. You’ve probably made a case for support at some point in your career – be it a letter, a grant proposal or a sales conversation over coffee.
