Grants Plus and the Scranton Area Community Foundation’s Grant Seeking Webinar and Coaching Series Continues Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 16th with Part 4: “Telling Your Compelling Story in Grant Form”

See below for registration information and how to catch up on past sessions.

Webinar 4: Telling Your Compelling Story in Grant Proposals

How can you keep readers riveted to your grant proposal? By telling a story! As the competition for grant funding becomes more intense, it’s never been more critical to tell funders a compelling story about why your work matters and is deserving of their investment. Join this webinar to learn how to use stories to show how you make a difference in the lives of those you serve and to articulate the importance of your organization to your community.


Webinar 5: Preparing Your Team to Pursue Federal Grants

Complex applications for federal grants take teamwork. This webinar will give you the knowledge you need to “divide and conquer” federal proposals, including how to set up an efficient, effective team that is ready to evaluate opportunities for a strong fit with your work, develop compelling and complete proposals, and carry out the work and evaluation that will be required after you receive a grant.


Future Sessions

Webinar 6: TBA
December 14, 2021 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Registration information for future sessions in the Grant Seeking Webinar and Coaching Series will be announced at a later date.

Coaching Sessions

Participating organizations may also schedule 1:1 coaching sessions (lasting thirty minutes per session) with experienced members of the Grants Plus team. Participants will sign up for coaching sessions “on demand” and receive personalized, constructive, and practical consultation on opportunities and challenges they face, which could include a range of issues relevant to executive, fund development, and program staff.

Registration information for coaching sessions will be made available during the webinars.

Previous Sessions

Webinar 1: Rewriting a New Narrative for Funders (Completed)

As we move through 2021, nonprofits continue to face many of the same challenges as they did in 2020: the effects of the ongoing pandemic, social distancing, an uncertain economy, disrupted revenues, and greater demand for services. The advantage we have this year is that we can be proactive to meet these hurdles head on. In this webinar, the experts at Grants Plus will share how nonprofit leaders can tell funders a new, compelling story of recovery and resilience.

Presented by Grants Plus with Lauren Steiner, President, and Sarah Dave, Managing Director

Webinar 2: Building a Prospective Funder Pipeline (Completed)

Be ready to replace lost funding and secure new revenues by installing a strategic practice to discover new potential grant funders. Set up your organization for long-term grants success by building a “pipeline” of the current and prospective funders that should be your priority for relationship building and solicitation.

Presented by Grants Plus with Senior Advisors, Matt Carter and Kari Mirkin

Webinar 3: Transforming Grant Prospects into Funders (Completed)

A great list of prospective funders won’t help your organization if you aren’t aware of the best ways to turn them into funders. This webinar will give you the tools you need to build lasting relationships with grantmakers, including how to make the first connection, and how to make grantmaking a team sport that involves your board, leadership, and other supporters.

Presented by Grants Plus with Senior Advisors, Kari Elsila and Jessica Salyers in partnership with the Center for Community Leadership and Nonprofit Excellence.
