Why Nonprofit Sustainability is More Important than Ever (And How To Amplify Your Grantmaking Impact)  

There is no greater time to highlight innovations taking place in grantmaking and sustaining nonprofit operations than right now. And never have fundraising know-how and quick pivots been more critical to the sustainability of our community’s nonprofits. Our neighbors everywhere are relying more than ever on critical support services; while our nonprofits are working tirelessly to meet needs and trying to figure out how to quickly shift fundraising plans while continuing to bring in revenue during social distancing mandates– a very tall order, under immense pressure.

In this webinar, we will dive into:

  • What 1,000 nonprofits told us they need to build financial resilience
  • Resources to help your grantees now and when the recovery process begins
  • How innovative grantmakers are amplifying their impact despite limited staff and funds
  • Why funders need to prioritize capacity building post COVID-19
  • Forward-thinking steps funders can take to support grantees beyond the pandemic
