How can we strengthen nonprofits and build their capacity to combat the “nonprofit starvation cycle”? Project grants routinely discount the core administrative and operational costs of delivering programs and services.
Join us for a conversation to inform funders to better understand equitable grant making and communicate what it actually costs to run effective organizations that achieve their intended goals.
What will you learn?
Best practices and policies to combat the “starvation cycle” that undercuts the effectiveness of our grantee partners.
Defining true cost as full cost—operating, non-operating and unfunded expenses.
"True cost" as a tool to strengthen nonprofits and aid in attracting and retaining high quality staff—especially now as leaders and staff suffer from exhaustion due to the continuing pandemic.
Advocating for equitable grant making that levels the playing field.
Supporting nonprofits' internal systems and processes that allow them to actually determine their full cost of delivering programs.
