2 Why is grant and online donor readiness important? Grant Readiness 80-90% of your grant narrative & application can be completed before you even see a funder s Request For Proposal (RFP) Copyright 2012 Alliance for Nevada Nonprofits 2

3 Online Donor Readiness The Internet shows donors how accountable and transparent your nonprofit is AND is not. The Internet provides nonprofits creative ways to raise Billions in funds online. Bottom Line You re wasting time AND losing money if you don t have a system in place to ensure your nonprofit is grant & online donor ready! Copyright 2012 Alliance for Nevada Nonprofits 3

4 What Role Do You Play? Board Members Staff Development Grant Program managers Clerical Others Volunteers Example: Grant Team International Institute for Social Artistry My Story - Back in 1988 A client asked me to write a Federal proposal It took me 100 hours Unfortunately, you won t write Something amazing happened to me after 12 years in the grant writing business... and a 92% success rate on all my grants. When I finished writing proposal #52 Somehow, I had gone from writing my first grant proposal in 100 hours... Copyright 2012 Alliance for Nevada Nonprofits 4

5 My Story For 20 Years For the last 20 years, I ve been wondering how I went from a $125,000 grant and 100 hours of work to a $420,000 grant and only 4 hours of work... with 92% success rate. The secret is to be grant ready and have a system in place before an RFP ever gets announced, including an RFP Analysis system. Whether you need $400 or $4,000 or even $400,000, this grant readiness system works. My Story - Three Weeks Ago A prospective client called. He had 10 days to complete an application for a Federal grant. He also knew that he (the Executive Director) would be out-of-town for 7 of the 10 days. When he asked if I would write the grant, I said, I ve got 4 hours I can give you next week, which is all I need if you re grant ready. Do you think the client was grant ready? On the Online Donor Readiness side Copyright 2012 Alliance for Nevada Nonprofits 5

6 Our Story - Online Donor Side Chase Nevada s Big Give: $413,000 in 24 hrs Dolan Automotive GuideStar Giving Season Giveaway Definition: Grant Readiness Means Having Electronic copies of agency-specific documents that you can Copy-and-paste or edit-and-paste into the narrative Include, if requested, in the appendixes Post on the Public Documents page on your website Immediate access to statistics (national, statewide and local, if possible) and data to illustrate a problem Strategic plans: sustainability (minimal) Funder Research: Funder priorities, patterns, values, eligibility, preferences, past grantees and timelines Copyright 2012 Alliance for Nevada Nonprofits 6

8 Being Grant Ready Is Being Accountable & Transparent! BEST PRACTICES 1. Governance 2. Financial 3. Legal 4. Program Management Accountability is an obligation or willingness by a charity to explain its actions to its stakeholders. Transparency is an obligation or willingness by a charity to publish and make available critical data about the organization. Generally speaking, charities that follow best practices in governance, donor relations and related areas are less likely to engage in unethical and irresponsible activities.
