Join us for a candid conversation with two program officers that represent two types of foundations you are most likely to encounter as a grant seeker: a regional grant maker that supports a variety of causes and a national foundation that gives to nonprofits working on a single mission.
You'll learn what decision-makers look for when reviewing project proposals submitted by nonprofits. They'll highlight the ways grant seekers can increase their odds for success and offer examples to illustrate what matters most.
Together, these veteran foundation executives will identify common pitfalls to avoid, offer advice on how to acknowledge shortcomings or failures, and share critical elements to doublecheck before sending in your proposal.
Don't miss the chance to hear directly from program officers and gain insights into what works and what doesn't, which types of information are weighted more heavily than others, and what it takes to rise to the top.
