Building on work with grantmakers in our network, Philanthropy Massachusetts presenters will share tips and tricks of how to be recognized as a leader in your field and stand out from the pack. Being recognized as a respected authority in your field, with an approach that achieves strong outcomes, can help you attract funders and donors. The session will include a discussion of possible places to share information about your organization, meaningful third party recognition, and examples of nonprofits standing out.

Participants will come away with a better understanding of where and how to stand out, peer-gained insights, methods for relationship building in the nonprofit and funding community, tips on how to communicate their organizations’ strengths and differentiators, and examples of successful strategies that can be applied to their work.

This workshop is appropriate for anyone interested in finding ways to expose their organization to a wider audience. It is useful for those who are relatively new to their work, as well those with multiple years of experience.
