How Nonprofits & Freelance Grant Writers Can Leverage the Great Resignation

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every particle of our lives. From our mental health to our physical health, we have been impacted. Nonprofit organizations and freelance grant writers are no exception to this impact. As we navigate through the ongoing pandemic, there has been many changes when it comes to employment.

In the early days of the pandemic, when the world shut down, one was deemed lucky to still have employment.

The nonprofit organizations that focus in the areas of health and food security sectors were (and still are) in extremely high demand and received a priority of funding. However, the demand on these nonprofit organizations was astronomical and even though they received increased funding they also had a tremendous increase on expenses.

While other nonprofit organizations, such as nonprofits serving the arts or smaller nonprofits with no built up revenue were not prioritized.

However, since 2020 the funding and human resource landscape has continued to evolve for nonprofit organizations and freelance grant writers. Which leads us to the conversation about how nonprofit leaders and freelance grant writers can leverage opportunities in the Great Resignation.
