Are You Looking Into Non-Grant Funding?
Nonprofit organizations sometimes seek non-grant funding — loans, loan guarantees, equity, etc. — for a variety of important purposes including:
- Cash flow timing issues or other working capital needs
- Real estate development or investment
- Scaling up existing programs or operations
- Investing in new projects, innovations or mission-related enterprises
When provided by specialized nonprofit financing sources, this type of financing may be available on below-market terms. But what does it take to be eligible for this type of funding and is it always a good idea to accept it?
We Will Discuss…
In an interactive session, providers of non-grant funding and nonprofit leaders who have accepted this type of finance will share insights about their successful experiences as well as pitfalls and problems. Speakers will discuss:
- Types of financing that are available, purposes and the range of providers
- Pointers on evaluating eligibility for funding, cash flow and ability to repay
- Common problems and how to avoid them
- Success factors and benefits of finance projects that work well
- Your questions will be answered
