About this event

During this program with Will Yang of Instrumentl, we will discuss what about grants make them such a powerful source of funding, as well as what we can all do with our nonprofits to ready ourselves for grant success in 2022.

By the end of this program, you'll be able to understand:

  • ​Why grants are so powerful, especially in 2022?
  • What is prospect research and why is it important?
  • 5 clear steps you can take to prepare your nonprofit for grant success.

Will works with Instrumentl. Backed by years of personal and professional experience in the nonprofit and academic arenas, the founding team came together to create the most comprehensive source of grant and funder data in the world, and designed it around the needs of our community.

Founded in 2014, Instrumentl was built to help fundraisers make the best use of their valuable time and energy. We make the grant process faster, easier, and more efficient, so you can do what you do best: make a positive impact.
