Sustainability: What Happens After the Grant Runs Out

“How do you plan to fund the work after the grant period?” Grantmakers just love to ask this question, and grantwriters just love to find ways around it. Instinctively, we know that the truth — we have no idea! — is not going to win us any fans. So some of us gaze at this question and freeze. Others of us simply cut and paste a stock answer about proving our worth and move on. And others of us skip it altogether. But what if we really did have a plan? What would a strong response look like? And how can we get there? This webinar will focus on:

  • Why grantmakers ask about sustainability and what they are looking for in a response
  • Meaningful strategies for continuing work after a grant period is ended
  • The elements of a sustainability plan
