We have assembled a group of esteemed grant makers from the region who will voice their opinions about philanthropy, grant making, relationship building, evaluations, and more. You will learn how grant making has changed in recent year; what funders look for in an organization and project; what makes one proposal more fundable over another; advice on overcoming “grant writing” obstacles; tips that help sell your story; the best way to build a relationship with a funder; and what things to never do.
