This week on #Grantchat we are welcoming Debbie DiVigillio, owner and principal consultant of the Faith Based Nonprofit Resource Center.
Why are we talking about faith based nonprofits and grants?
Typically, a nonprofit organization’s funding plan consists of a mix of individual donors, special events, corporate support and grant funding. As Debbie points out, all nonprofits, including faith based organizations, are served best when they develop a diverse array of funding sources so that the organization does not become dependent on one major funding source. As a funding source for faith based organizations, grant funds are often one of the least understood.
On 7/28/2015 at 12 Noon ET, Debbie will lead the GrantChat community in a conversation about faith based organizations and grants. Do you have questions you would like us to address in the chat? Do you have blog posts or articles about faith based organizations and grants? Please share them in the comments or we invite you to share them via social media using the hashtag #grantchat.
You can connect with Debbie on the Faith Based Nonprofit Resource Center website and on Twitter @grantconsultant. Debbie will answer questions live during the chat on Tuesday, July 28th at 12 Noon on Twitter.
