NOT1841 - Just Say 'No' to Funding

Jun 19, 2018 2:45pm ‐ Jun 19, 2018 4:00pm

Standard: $49.00


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.

  • Apply a strategic and objective approach to funding and gift acceptance
  • Determine the key factors to consider prior to accepting funding and donations
