Questions for Before You Seek the Grant
Do you have a program idea you hesitate to pursue at your non-profit organization because you are stumped on how to fund the program AFTER a grant starts it in your nonprofit? Here is an exercise of discovery, you can use at your site. To discover new possibilities, gather a group of up to seven stakeholders. Select questions from following list to encourage participants to move beyond the “raise more money” answer you already anticipated. Ask participants to silently answer each question on three sticky notes or index cards. When completed, ask them to label each answer in priority order, from one to three, with one the highest. Anonymously collect the cards for future analysis or post them to strategize sustainability plan with the group.
