Grant Seeking and Grant Writing 101
Central Library, Browning Room B, Evansville IN

9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. CDT

The Indiana Nonprofit Resource Network is pleased to join the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library to help nonprofit organizations find the grant opportunities they need to sustain their critical work. Participants will learn what funders are looking for in grant proposals and how to find applicable grants.

In this workshop, we will review what every grant maker is looking for prior to funding a proposal. You will learn what will improve your possibility of being funded and what will reduce the possibility of funding. This is a foundational review of the basics of a successful grant proposal.

Participants will also learn about resources available in the Foundation Center of the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library to help you more effectively find grant opportunities. Receive hands-on training in the use of the Foundation Directory Online, a custom searchable database providing in-depth information on over 92,000 grant makers.

The Board's Role in Fundraising
Lifelong Learning Center, Scottsburg IN

11:00 am – 1:00 pm EDT

Getting members of a nonprofit board of directors to actively participate in fundraising can be one of the biggest challenges faced by a nonprofit.  The first step is to understand the nature and facts about charitable giving.  Secondly, it is important to understand that there are dozens of ways in which board members can fundraise, depending entirely on their personal preferences.  Participants in this workshop will understand these two concepts and more and they will believe that “fundraising is NOT begging, it is a values exchange!”

Fundraising: Donor Communications That Engage and Retain Donors
United Way of Southwestern Indiana, Evansville IN

11:15 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. EST

If you’re a fundraiser or nonprofit development professional, you’ve likely heard the term “donor retention.” It’s one of the hottest topics of discussion in the nonprofit sector. But what is donor retention? And why is it important?

This workshop will focus on how to effectively communicate with your donors in order to increase your retention rates. We will also focus on what can be done about retaining donors and building donor loyalty based on the principles of Dr. Adrian Sargeant and Tom Ahern, two of the foremost authorities on donor communications! We will show examples of their principles in action via various kinds of written and digital communications. The results of improved donor communications can be astounding when put into daily use. After all: it’s not about you. It’s about the donor.
