Have you realized that it is easier to fund your programs and special projects than it is to raise the dollars you need to keep the lights on? Are you faced with tough decisions or being forced to “cut back” because your organization isn’t able to fully fund your operating budget? This webinar will identify the building blocks of a strong budget and explain how nonprofits can easily raise the dollars needed to cover overhead costs. We will discuss how proper budgeting will propel grant proposals to success and how to use messaging to raise these much-needed funds. You’ll see how to accurately describe, budget, and properly package your programs and projects to effectively secure funds from diversified funding streams.

This webinar on how to raise general operating dollars was great! It really opened my eyes to a more accurate picture of our budget, and how that can be used to approach Foundations, as well as, individual donors for general operations funding for our organization. Thank you so much for making this available to us! It was extremely helpful. I would recommend this to anyone seeking new and innovative ways to raise money for your nonprofit!
