Starting a nonprofit is a long process that causes a lot of people frustration and grant-writing is an even longer endeavor. Most people see these barrier to entry as the great wall of china and turn away. But, these barriers are used to keep people away (even those with the best of intentions) because the government wants to see that your dedication is enduring. Longevity is the most important concept in nonprofits because you can't help people if you're not around. So, the government and foundations want to see proof of your stay power and that you've got the chops to make the cut.
You'll learn how to form your nonprofit and how to find the grants and funding you need in order to get your nonprofit off the ground.
