Funding News and Grant Tips

Nearly 1.4 Billion People Worldwide Gave to Charity in 2017
In 2017, an estimated 1.4 billion people around the world gave money to a charity, a billion volunteered their time to a nonprofit, and 2.2 billion helped a stranger in need, a report from Gallup finds.
Based on interviews with more than a hundred and fifty-three thousand people age 15 and older in a hundred and forty-six countries, the 2018 World's Most Generous Countries Report found that, on average, 27 percent of respondents said they had given to charity, 18 percent had volunteered, and 43 percent had helped a stranger in the past month. Based on a composite score of the three metrics in each country, the Civic Engagement Index ranked Indonesia — where 78 percent of respondents gave to charity and 53 percent volunteered — as the most generous country overall, followed by Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and Ireland. While Americans were the ninth most likely to volunteer (39 percent) and tenth most likely to help a stranger (72 percent), they did not rank in the top ten for giving to charity.
Myanmar, which has a strong Buddhist tradition of giving to and volunteering at temples, had topped the list for many years and retained the top spot for giving to a charity in 2017 but fell to ninth place overall, with the percentage of people volunteering and helping strangers in need dropping to new lows for the country. Countries with the lowest Civic Engagement Index scores included China, Yemen, the Palestinian territories, and Greece.

Webinar - Work Smarter, Not Harder: Strategically Planning your Grant Proposals
SPONSOR: Thompson Grants 
WHEN: January 22, noon to 1:30 pm.
WHERE: Webinar.
DESCRIPTION: Do you receive every grant for which you apply? 
Of course not! So what if you could know in advance which grants to pursue and which to let go? And what if you could align all your grant seeking activities with the size of your organization’s mission—and the time, team and budget it’s realistic to invest? 
Now, a grants development shows you a strategic approach for reducing effort as you maximize the impact of every proposal you do submit.
In this 90-minute webinar, Linda Wastyn, Ph.D., draws on 30 years of grants development expertise to help you find and focus on grant activities that maximize your strengths and minimize your weaknesses. The result? You right-size your efforts to fit your resources—and achieve your mission. 
Practical guidance on what to pursue … or let go. You’ll learn how to use your goals, strengths, needs, values and individual circumstances as a filter for what to pursue or let go. You’ll also be able to use this approach to justify your decisions and demonstrate their strategic value. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
COST: Live: $249. On demand: $249. Live and on demand: $349. For more information and registration go to: http://grants.thompson.com/Work-Smarter-Not-Harder-January-2019?src=EM&_zs=emcRL1&_zl=Db7p4

She will provide a suggested timeline to help spread out costs, and also discuss nonprofit alternatives that you might want to consider.

Webinar - How to Craft Gift Agreements
SPONSOR: The Chronicle of Philanthropy 
WHEN: March 7, 1 to 2 pm.
WHERE: Webinar.
DESCRIPTION: Learn how to develop agreements that honor a donor's wishes and protect your organization's interests far into the future.
News accounts of wealthy donors undoing multimillion-dollar pledges — or suing to take back money already paid — highlight the importance of crystal-clear gift agreements. How can you help clarify long-term expectations for a gift and avoid making promises you can't keep?
In this one-hour session, you'll learn from a top fundraiser at Morehouse College and a philanthropy adviser who once ran a large foundation. These experts will explain how to evaluate the terms of a gift and accurately articulate expectations in writing. Plus, you'll get tips for avoiding pitfalls while ensuring your key supporters feel valued. Reserve your spot now to get the early-bird discount.
COST: $79 before February 28. $99 after February 28. For more information and registration go to: https://www.philanthropy.com/webinars/detail/1194?CID=WEBINARS1194E1

Webinar - Communicate and Connect with Major Donors: How to Unlock More Gifts
SPONSOR: The Chronicle of Philanthropy 
WHEN: January 24, 1 to 2 pm.
WHERE: Webinar.
DESCRIPTION: Most fundraisers can think of a donor or prospect with whom they just didn’t click - someone who seemed interested in the mission but never said yes to that big gift. These interactions can drag on for a long time, with an end-result that is puzzling and frustrating. What went wrong?
You may have overlooked some critical factors. Personality, communication preferences, and a person’s priorities may be just as important as a donors’ giving history, capacity to give, and personal interests. 
Join us for a one-hour session on social styles - how people send and receive information and interact with one another. You’ll gain an understanding of your own social style, learn how to identify a donor’s, and get tactics for adapting your approach to better connect with donors and prospects - or your coworkers or bosses. 
We’ll identify four primary behavior profiles and help you understand how to adapt your interactions to accommodate a donor, so you can secure the most significant gift possible.
