Making the Case to Advocacy Funders (NEW)

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Fundraising for advocacy can be particularly challenging! Systemic reforms and policy change can take years to accomplish, if ever, and often depend on factors outside of your nonprofit’s control—while most funders want to see meaningful progress each grant period. The pool of advocacy funders is distinctive, but the good news is that those interested in investing in advocacy typically do understand that change requires a longer timeline and are willing to award larger grants to support it. The question is: how do you find and pursue them? In this webinar, Alayna Buckner, CEO of Elevate, will do a deep dive into the nuances of how to effectively find, pursue, and win more grants for your advocacy organization. This webinar is ideal for grantwriting professionals in the advocacy space, including anyone new to fundraising and grantwriting and experienced grantwriting professionals looking for a refresher.
