The need statement is arguably the most important part of the grant proposal. Uncover the most effective methods for documenting the need, as well as ways to use that information to engage the reader. Cynthia Adams will share how to call attention to the problem or need facing your organization or community, and how to take that information and create a sense of urgency so the grantmaker feels compelled to act now.
Cynthia M. Adams, CEO of GrantStation
Cynthia has spent the past 40 years helping nonprofit organizations raise the money needed to do their good work. In 1990 she started her first company, the Alaska Funding Exchange. This endeavor served as the testing ground for a national company, GrantStation, which opened its Internet doors in the fall of 2001. Cindy built this business because she believes that grantseeking requires a thorough understanding of the variety and scope of grantmakers and sound knowledge of the philanthropic playing field.
