Organizational Readiness for Fundraising – Dr. Arlene Siller

November 5 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm


Organizational Readiness for fundraising is tailored to nonprofits, focusing on preparing them to secure funding, particularly through grants. This comprehensive training session equips participants with the knowledge and tools to assess and strengthen their nonprofit’s readiness to attract funding sources. Through interactive discussions, real-life case studies, and hands-on exercises, attendees will learn to evaluate their nonprofit’s current state, identify potential barriers to securing grants, and develop targeted strategies to overcome these obstacles. Key areas covered include aligning leadership and optimizing resources and technology to meet grant funding requirements. Participants will leave the workshop with a clear understanding of their nonprofit’s readiness level and a personalized action plan to enhance their positioning for successful grant acquisition and sustainable growth.
