Webinar: Grantseeking Trends: Who Gets Funding and What That Means for Your Nonprofit- 2016-01-21

1,450 views

Published on

We all ask ourselves these questions: Who will fund my organization? What is a reasonable level of funding to expect for my organization? Does my budget, location, or mission affect my organization's ability to be awarded grants?

Join GrantStation to get answers to these important questions. The State of Grantseeking survey results will help you understand
recent trends in grantseeking and how you can use those trends to grow your organization. Survey results reflect the grantseeking results of 2,247 respondents and can serve as benchmarks to compare your grantseeking prospects with those of other, comparable organizations.
