Grant writing Changes &
the Post-Covid Shift:
How to Pivot Your Organizational Grant Writing Strategy in 2021 

In 2020, every nonprofit has struggled with change and challenges.

Everything changed and likely so did your programs, your solutions, and your organization. How can you tell a story to grant makers that makes your organization’s work relevant, urgent, and worthy of investment? 

  • Reflect the new normal (societal need) 
  • Put voices of who you serve front and center (relevance) 
  • Anticipate funder expectations (diversity, equity & inclusion)
