Research for the Win: Highly effective research strategies to secure more foundation, corporate and government support for your organization.  

 Whether you’re in a two-person or a 200-person development department, we all know the importance foundation, corporate and government support plays in growing your organization and supporting or expanding critical programs. Yet, the question many fundraisers face is: with so many companies, foundations and government agencies to approach, where do I even begin? 

We all know there’s nothing worse than spending 20 hours on a grant proposal, only to miss out on a funding opportunity for one key reason: the foundation’s or the company’s funding priorities don’t align with the work your organization is doing. 

Whether you work in a small or large shop, our expert panel will help provide you with essential advice and necessary tools to not only find funders that most align with your organization’s mission, but also keep them engaged year after year. 

Key Program Takeaways: 

Smaller organizations will learn cost-effective ways to discover and better research sources of corporate, foundation and government support. 

New fundraisers and nonprofit professionals will learn which databases and tools are best for researching sources of foundation and government support. 

 All attendees will learn the best practices and communications strategies to approach corporate, foundation and government decision-makers to learn about areas said foundations/corporations/congressmen/women support. 

Improve organizational understanding of how to build long-term relationships with generous corporate, foundation and government funders to create life-long partners for their respective organizations.
