Foundations provided over $55 billion in grants to U.S. nonprofits in 2013, and the U.S. government itself awarded over $198 billion of support in 2014. Now that the economy is strengthening, this giving is increasing substantially. It goes without saying that the support of foundations provides much-needed capital and credibility to nonprofits. By implementing a few best practices and strategies, you can identify the right prospects, get a call or meeting to make your pitch, and improve your success rate from 5% to 50%.

Please join our seasoned presenter, Darian Rodriguez Heyman, as he demystifies grant funding and shares the tips and tools needed to maximize results, and do so in less time than you’re likely spending on this strategy today.
