If you ask nonprofit leaders what they see as the biggest obstacle to improving technology in their organizations, the most common answer is “money”. Other resource constraints such as expertise and staffing are often mentioned as well. Given all these constraints and the incredible pace of technology change, how can nonprofits keep up?
We’ll explore how to identify potential funding sources for different types of technology projects and outline strategies for approaching these funders by building a case for your organization’s specific technology needs.
Over the course of the workshop, we'll be guiding attendees through the completion of a technology fundraising application, preparing attendees for submersion in the Technology Funding Shark Tank. The last part of this workshop will be the "Shark Tank", where selected participants will pitch their project to a panel of sharks comprised of facilitators and audience members.
- Understand how funding opportunities fit within an overall IT budget or strategy
- Understand how strategic planning enhances your ability to find and obtain grants
- How to build a realistic action plan for navigating the technology funding landscape
