Strengthening Nonprofits - Advancing The Grant Profession
The Every Chapter Challenge is a national campaign to raise funds for the grant profession. The Board is challenging all GPA chapters to join forces with us to enhance the GPA membership experience by strengthening non-profits and advancing the grant profession.
Each year since 2008, the Grant Professionals Foundation has relied upon the philanthropic and competitive spirit of GPA chapters and members to fund programs to advance the grants profession. Funds raised through the Every Chapter Challenge not only provide funds for scholarships, but also help GPA chapters to acknowledge, retain, and recruit their leaders and members.
The Every Chapter Challenge is a wonderful way every GPA Chapter can strengthen the grants profession. GPF Board of Directors encourages all GPA Chapters to participate, at a level that makes sense to the local leadership. The Foundation relies upon the generosity of our donors to fund our varied projects and programs. Previous Every Chapter Challenge campaigns have funded GPC™ Scholarships, secured the funding to send scholarship recipients to GPA Annual Conferences, and supported the GPF’s Open Membership Scholarship program.
Chapters join the Shooting Star Club by donating a minimum amount through the Every Chapter Challenge campaign. The Star Chapter raises the most funds in support of the Foundation during the annual Every Chapter Challenge, earning bragging rights, cross marketing opportunities, and a recognition award. We have developed an ECC Tool Box items as a resource for Chapter Presidents, leaders and members to assist with your fundraising efforts.
