Is your organization big enough to apply for federal funding? The answer may surprise you!

Fundable Programs: Building What Funders Want Into Your Programming
Tuesday, Oct. 22 from 1 – 4 p.m. 
If you’ve ever answered a list of funder questions about a program or struggled to find program details for a grant application, you know that successful fundraising is often not just about what your programs do, but how they do it. In this session, you will learn why and how good program design is related to funding; what program design elements funders want; how to demonstrate that your programs’ needs, activities, outcomes, evaluation, and budget all support each other; and what to do when things don’t go as planned.

Fee: $65 per session, or $115 for both sessions. Register online today!
