It’s a vicious cycle. Program costs and salaries continue to rise as nonprofits struggle to operate within budget and retain talented staff; yet grant makers don’t often support “overhead” or increase their giving, even as expenses go up each year. Meanwhile experts say nonprofits shouldn’t be shy about talking about their need for general support or increased grant awards. How can leaders make a compelling case for general-operating support while positioning their organizations as strong and sustainable?

In this 75-minute webinar, learn from grant-seeking experts how to demonstrate financial transparency, resiliency, and sustainability to secure unrestricted support.

This session qualifies for 1.25 CFRE credits.
