This session will be a valuable investment of time for YOU or someone from your organization…

  • If you plan to apply for funding in 2020;
  • If you have received a grant from the Community Foundation in the past several years;
  • If you have applied for funding in the past and were unsuccessful;
  • If you are confused about the various grant/fund options available through the Community Foundation;

  • Community Foundation 101 – what is the difference between the various funds; and do you qualify for funding?
  • Competitive Grant Programs – How much funding is available? what is an appropriate ask? when is the right time to apply? what are the guidelines and deadlines? which program is the right fit for your organization?
  • How does the Donor Advised Fund work? Is that an option for funding for you?
  • Tips and Tricks regarding the Online Application Site – from application to follow up.
  • Q&A

Lynn Geier, Donor Advised Fund Representative

Educational opportunities such as the George L. Ruder Forum, Professional Advisors Symposium, and roundtable discussions address issues of current interest and importance to the community. Nonprofit leaders attending our Nonprofit Management Institute and Lunch and Learn sessions learn how to strengthen
their organization and become more effective in accomplishing their mission. They also benefit from networking with attendees from other charitable organizations.
