WHY DO NONPROFITS NEED GRANT WRITERS?
Not-for-profit (or nonprofit) 501(c) entities rely on fundraising and development to sustain their mission. Grant writing is one of the key strategies in the nonprofits sector for fundraising.
WHAT DO NONPROFIT MANAGERS DO?
Nonprofit managers to oversee organizational structure and day-to-day activities of a nonprofit. These individuals focus on administration rather than generating revenue. However, for many small or startup nonprofits, the roles of fundraising and management may fall on the same individual.
ARE THERE OTHER WAYS THAT NONPROFITS CAN FUNDRAISE?
Yes. Beyond grant writing, organizations can set up auctions, donation drives, events and more. To do this, a nonprofit must have a clear mission, vision and organizational structure.
WHAT TYPES OF GRANTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR NONPROFITS?
Federal, state, foundation and corporate grants are available. The Federal government is the largest source of grant funding.
