Demonstrating Sustainability in your Grant Writing

Wednesday, March 6 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
125 East 31st Street, Kansas City, MO 64108

About

A common question on grant applications is “How will you sustain this program after the grant funding is over?” Many grant writers will want to answer glibly, “Write more grants, of course!” But, what should you really include in your answer about a sustainability plan?  

In addition to learning how to provide an honest answer to this question, this session highlights all the things you can tell funders about program sustainability beyond finances; such as alignment with your strategic plan, staffing plans or challenges, and alignment to the needs of the community.  You’ll also learn how to develop a more complete answer to financial sustainability that demonstrates how your organization manages fundraising for long-term program sustainability and growth.
