During this workshop participants will receive a comprehensive collection of available nonprofit funding sources and step-by-step guidance on how to access them.

Participants completing this workshop will learn:

  • 21 ways to fund a nonprofit
  • How to research and source these funders using free search engines and databases
  • How to immediately identify funder priorities and restrictions
  • How to properly track funding opportunities
  • The importance of a diversified funding base
