Funding Basics for Nonprofit Organizations
Nonprofit organizations that need assistance in negotiating the grant process can find guidance from a newly revised handbook published by the Empowerment Resource Network. The book, Raising Resources: A More-Than-Fundraising Workshop Handbook, covers the whole funding process from establishing nonprofit status and crafting a mission statement to developing budgets and finance plans, identifying appropriate funding sources, and writing fundraising letters and grant proposals. Other topics covered include using volunteers and forming strategic partnerships. A list of resources is also provided.
