Overview

Governments at all levels traditionally enter into agreements with nonprofit organizations to provide services to constituents. In previous years as much as one-third of revenue for 501(c)(3) public charities came from the government through formal contracts and grants. Government funding can be a highly strategic revenue source, but it is critical to understand the pros and cons of this funding and its impact on the culture of the organization.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the current environment around government funding, including trends and major sources of grants and contracts.
  • Identify available resources to support fundraising from government sources and the key requirements for nonprofits to receive government grants or contracts.
  • Give examples of key considerations in applying for government support, including identifying well-suited funding opportunities and unique stewardship and accounting issues.

Audience

Whether staff, volunteer, or board member, if you are new to nonprofits or new to fundraising, this series of classes is for you! The individual courses in the Certificate of Fundraising Essentials are at the 100 (introductory) level and designed for people looking for the fundamentals of primary revenue sources and of managing successful fundraising and development operations.

For intermediate/advanced coursework on these topics, please check out our additional Fundraising and Development certificates and courses in our Course Catalog.
