Ways Nonprofits Can Ask For Funds from State, County, and Local Government


About the event

Smaller nonprofits often miss out on opportunities to access government funding because they aren’t aware of the opportunities or how to engage. This presentation will explain the various types of funding available. It will provide an overview of the different requirements, and specifics on where to find more information. The workshop addresses equity by empowering rural and marginalized nonprofits with information to increase their access to funding. It disrupts systemic inequity through information sharing.

Although anyone is welcome, this workshop is most relevant for Executive Directors, development staff, program staff, and finance staff.
