Creating Better Fund Development Strategies

Fund Development on #Grantchat

This week on #grantchat we are discussing fund development. As the founder, owner, and Managing Director of SmartEGrants and GrantChat, I have been working with more nonprofits and grant/fundraising consultants who are looking for ways to be more efficient, get a greater return on their investments, increase funds, and grow their organizations.  Each organization is different, of course. Yet, we keep coming back to a common theme – the staff and or consultants working to raise funds and grow programs are not working together. In fact, in some organizations, they are siloed from each other, or, worse, pitted against each other for (un)healthy competition.  Fund development activities are interdependent and creating and nurturing strong fund development team can do wonders for your organization’s bottom line and your employee satisfaction.
