Group workshop for 6 people:
The Dance of Foundation Relations
Foundation relations is a neglected topic of discussion, but veteran fundraisers know that it is a skill that can make or break a funding opportunity. The goal of this workshop is to highlight the social and cognitive dimensions of funder behavior that will increase your success with institutional donors. The 3-hour workshop will give nonprofit fundraisers a behind-the-scenes perspective of the key drivers of foundation decision-making so that they can manage their relationships with funders more strategically. A mix of discussion activities will focus on the most common questions about foundation relations:
- How do funders make decisions?
- What funder biases should I guard against?
- How can I influence funders besides the written proposal?
- What data do funders value as they assess potential impact?
- What are the common pitfalls in foundation relations?
- How do I manage the unequal power dynamic?
