Manifesto: After the Survey

by Ellen Mowrer and Cynthia Adams

I’ve analyzed the results and written the reports for the State of Grantseeking Survey™ since 2012. Over the years, we’ve increased the depth and breadth of the questions and increased the core group of respondents from around 700 to over 2,800. Over the past eight years, one thing has remained constant—nonprofit organizations are seriously hobbled by a lack of time and staff and are constantly constrained in their ability to provide services and increase capacity.

Branding Your Application (NEW)

Thursday, June 6, 2019

Does your brand belong in your grant application? How does having a clear brand save you time and increase your chances of being awarded a grant? How hard is it to create a clear brand? Branding is your shortcut—it’s the words, phrases, and images that give people instant recognition of who you are. While ‘brand’ might seem like a word that only applies to corporations, your nonprofit has one, whether you think it does or not. In this interactive webinar, Ara G. Beal of Storybook Foundry will share what you need to know about nonprofit branding and grantwriting. Additionally, she’ll guide you through two of the Storybook Foundry’s tools to clarify and unify your brand. You’ll identify words to avoid and words to use in all of your communications and learn how to compile your most compelling testimonials.
