#51 Sybil Speaks: Communicate Your Grant Making Strategy Correctly

Nov 15, 2021

In this week’s episode, I discuss the differences and similarities between a general support grant and a project grant. And I think this is an important topic to talk about because a lot of people in the philanthropy world seem to struggle with this and get the two mixed up which can lead to frustration and miscommunication between you and the nonprofits you work with.

By understanding the differences between the two types of grants and being clear on your goals, you can avoid those hazards and be able to effectively collaborate with nonprofits on the issues you want to solve. Find out more on how you can better lean into your role as a funder by tuning in!


Episode Highlights:

  • The differences and similarities between a general support grant and a project grant
