Join The Chronicle of Philanthropy and two veteran grant makers for an inside look at grant seeking.
Our speakers will offer you a candid appraisal of what works and what doesn't in grant seeking from the foundation's perspective – beginning with a nonprofit's initial approach, through the proposal submission, and all the way to the site visit.
You'll hear from Elspeth Revere, a just-retired vice president at the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and Theresa Deibele, a former nonprofit director who oversees affordable housing grants at Meyer Memorial Trust, one of the largest foundations in Oregon. Together they have evaluated thousands of proposals and supported hundreds of projects.
They'll share tips for managing relationships at foundations, explain the kinds of information program officers want, and offer concrete suggestions to help you strengthen your case for support. They'll tell you what works well and what you should stop doing.
Don't miss this chance to ask two seasoned grant makers your questions and gain a better understanding of how program officers evaluate projects, so you can increase your odds of winning grants.
