Money Talks will feature contributions from Ken Wyman, Certified Fundraising Executive and Professor of Fundraising at Humber College, as well as other influencers in the fundraising field.
The third Issue Don’t Take Grants for Granted will help you find other grants, and others in this series will help you develop a strategy to find revenue from major donors and the wider public. If you are having trouble getting or receiving grants, this article will help you find grantors and learn how to connect effectively with governments, foundations, corporations, and other less well-known grantors.
