It goes without saying that funding is needed to accomplish mission. However, funding continues to be a nonprofit organization's greatest challenge, and "No, Thank You!" may in fact just be the best answer to a funding opportunity. Join three nonprofit professionals in setting the path to a funding strategy that strengthens your organization, rather than depletes it. Strategic considerations in this discussion will include:
-Is there a match between the funding level and expected results?
-Is it time to exit a program rather than keep it alive?
-Does the funding increase our diversification strategy?
-Is this opportunity in line with our gift acceptance policy?
This session will leave participants with the confidence to just say "No" to certain funding.
