Many corporations and foundations are consolidating their giving into fewer, larger awards. No matter the size of your nonprofit, you can benefit from the specialized strategies that lead to significant private grants.

In this webinar, we share the key differences between competing for your nonprofit’s annual awards and those that stand to make up your largest private grants to date. We discuss strategies that strengthen your staff, your relationships with funders, and your nonprofit in this increasingly competitive environment.
