Learn the essentials, and necessity, of diversifying your funding.
David Halpern is a local consultant who has been involved with the finances of nonprofits for more than thirty years. He will provide an overview of the importance of not relying on only one source, or type, of funding. He believes that many Miami-Dade organizations have been overly dependent on government funding.
After briefly discussing alternatives such as philanthropy and earned income, this session will focus on grants that are available from foundations and corporations. Changes in the philanthropic landscape and what funders are now looking for will be discussed by a panel.
Participants will have the opportunity to question the panelists and get practical advice on how to improve their chances of winning grants.
