Nonprofit Essentials 101: What to do in your first 12 months!

Starting a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization is a major decision that requires significant forethought before and after you receive IRS tax exemption. As a nonprofit founder and or new board member, you will likely have questions that you already know to ask or seek answers for, and there will be questions that you don’t even know to ask!

What you’ll learn:

  • How to prepare for your first board meeting and what key activities happen in your first meeting
  • The difference between the 3 IRS 990 information returns
  • Whether Charitable Solicitation Laws apply to you
  • Which insurance policies are available for nonprofit organizations
  • Which planning documents will be most useful to you in your first year
  • Where to find immediate resources to increase your nonprofit leadership capacity

The Art of Grant-Writing

A nonprofit grant is a sum of money given by a government, corporation, or foundation for a specific purpose and used to further the mutual mission between the grantee and grantor. This training provides a comprehensive overview of the process for developing a standard nonprofit grant proposal that can be used multiple times to pursue funding. Because the grant proposal serves as your template for grant-applications, EVERY nonprofit should have one!

At the conclusion of the training workshop, you should be able to:

  • Describe the three primary sources for grant funding.
  • Describe the 8 standard sections of a grant-proposal.
  • Understand key information to include in each section.
  • Understand why funding applications are denied and what to do about it.
  • Locate some of the best sources for finding grants.

Intended Audience: This course is designed to help pre-startup, newly formed, and small to mid-sized nonprofits position themselves for grant funding opportunities. Suitable for all levels of experience.
