Gearing Up Your Grant Strategies for 2024

Gearing Up Your Grant Strategies for 2024

with Alice Ruhnke

October 4 | 1:00-2:00 PM CT

Philanthropy is always evolving. Being up to date on current trends can provide numerous benefits. It makes it easier to engage current or prospective funders and build meaningful partnerships. By tailoring your messaging and outreach strategies, you’ll demonstrate to funders that your organization is adaptive and responsive to societal priorities.  

However, staying up to date with these changes and trends can be challenging. If you’re busy doing the work needed to improve your community, you may not have the time or resources needed to keep up with the rapidly evolving landscape. 

During this 60-minute webinar with Alice Ruhnke, President of GrantStation, you’ll learn about current giving trends and how you can maximize your grant strategies. This session will explore three key areas and provide you with action steps you can take now to gear up your grant seeking and proposal development for 2024. 

Moreover, working with community assets, partners, and other resources can provide a significant advantage when seeking grant funds, as it shows potential funders that you have wide-ranging support for your projects. We’ll discuss ways to find and communicate your in-kind support to funders. 

Finally, we’ll explore the movement to address inequities and inequalities, which thankfully have not gone by the wayside. You’ll discover ways to incorporate your diversity, equity, and inclusion activities into your grant proposals. 

You will walk away with practical advice and resources to help you address:

  • diversifying your funding streams in light of giving trends; 
  • ways to secure and leverage in-kind support; and,
  • diversity, equity, and inclusion in your grant planning. 

This session is perfect for any nonprofit leader, staff member, or volunteer involved in the development process who wants to create more impactful grant strategies for 2024.
