At its core, fundraising is about building relationships. And just like any other relationship, a strong grantee-grantor relationship takes time, skill, and attention. In this webinar, the grant writing experts from Elevate will cover everything you need to know about cultivating relationships with program officers and funders to help you strengthen your pipeline of grantmakers and ultimately secure more grants for your programs.
You can expect to learn:
- what a program officer is;
- how to reach out and connect with program officers before submitting a grant proposal;
- how to craft compelling cultivation emails that get responses; and,
- tips for building strong funder relationships over time.
This training is ideal for anyone in a development or communications department, or a volunteer engagement team, who has to ask potential supporters to give their time or money. It is also relevant for grant writers or program staff responsible for collecting stories of impact or quotes from participants.
