Grant Writing in 2021:
What's Different and What's the Same?

2020 was quite a year! There was not much "business as usual" and we all had to adapt to new ways of doing things. Nonprofit organizations were significantly impacted by the epidemic and not only suffered from a lack of funds, but also saw an increase in people needing services. How do we move forward in our grant writing strategies in 2021? During this webinar, find out about trends in giving, what has changed, and what remains the same so you can weather the storm and continue providing important, mission-driven services.
