"Fundraising in the Coronavirus Era Session 3: Foundations and Grants"

Friday, April 10th, 2020. - 12:00pm


MPW Strategies will present another session in the Fundraising in the Coronavirus Era series.

Join us for a candid discussion as we dig into ways to best handle fundraising during the coronavirus outbreak. Our special guest this week is Shira Zimmerman, CEO/Co-Founder, ZIM Consulting.

During this session, we will cover topics related to foundations and grants includiing: 

 - How has the foundation community responded to this crisis, and are there new opportunities to receive emergency grant funding?
 - If an organization doesn’t qualify for some of the new opportunities, how can they secure emergency funding to replace program revenue or fundraising dollars?
 - Should organizations continue to apply for their ongoing grants right now?
 - Is it possible to cultivate new foundation relationships during the crisis?


This webinar will be recorded and available to registrants.
