Securing a general operating grant that gives your organization unrestricted, flexible funds to use where they are needed may seem as likely as winning the lottery.  Since a general operating proposal is, in essence, a case in support of your entire organization, you need to be able to present a compelling yet succinct case that encompasses your purpose, goals, current programs, outcomes, evaluation and indication of organizational sustainability.

Convincing a funder to invest in your organization by providing working capital to sustain day-to-day operations includes answering such questions as:  how do you demonstrate impact?  How do you determine the best prospects for this kind of request?  This webinar will help provide the tools you need to demonstrate to best-fit funders that you are deserving of their trust, confidence and commitment to deliver on your mission promise.
