FND 140 | Intro to Government Funding

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.

March 18 Class: Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, this class will be offered online via Zoom. Registrants will be emailed the day before their class with detailed instructions and the Zoom meeting link. Please note the time for the Zoom classes will be provided in the email.

GCN is actively monitoring information from the CDC and health department and we understand that the situation is fluid, so we plan to be in contact with any changes.

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.
