To maximize impact, nonprofits must constantly look out for new funding opportunities, and also reassess how they can maximize traditional efforts. Foundation grants represent a great opportunity for nonprofits to fund key programs and infrastructure, but if not pursued strategically they can be a huge waste of time. Learn how to get more grants in the door, while actually investing less time writing grants in this insightful workshop, after which your organization will be well poised to secure your fair share of the $55B doled out annually in the US alone. Heyman will share concrete tips and tools for identifying and prioritizing prospects, getting in the door and securing a call or meeting, and he will provide a step-by-step framework designed to improve your grantwriting success rate from 5% to 50%.
