The Center Cannot Hold: A Look at Political Polarization and Nonprofits

by Kevin Peters

Is the world more divided or does it just seem like it? Are we more perceptive of a chasm that has always been there, or has the world changed? While the last couple of years may seem like a sea change of partisan divide, they are the culmination of decades of ideological shifts.

So LOUD—Can You Filter?

by Ellen Mowrer

A few months ago, I wrote a blog about how very, very LOUD the world feels these days. I mentioned that I had little ability to filter content through the clatter, so instead, I was aiming to manage my responses and always lead with kindness. It hasn’t changed the noise level, but the interactions feel “softer” and I feel better about the level of care I am showing to others.

Practical Grantwriting: How to Answer That Tricky Sustainability Question (NEW)

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Sustainability sections of grant applications are inherently tricky: it’s important to show that your organization needs the requested funding, but also, that it is not overly-reliant on those funds (or on any specific grant or source). In this webinar, Alayna Buckner, the CEO and Founder of Elevate, will help you understand how funders think about sustainability and give you practical tips to strengthen your grant requests. By the end of the webinar, you will understand essential information to include when funders ask about sustainability; review “under-looked” strategies that your organization may already be using to promote program sustainability, and how to talk about them in grant requests; and see actual examples of compelling sustainability sections. This training is ideal for grantwriting professionals at all levels, including anyone new to fundraising and grantwriting as well as experienced professionals looking for a refresher.
