There are a handful of nonprofits I hear from all the time. They tell me about new initiatives, emerging needs, and upcoming projects. They ask my opinion about new programs or evaluation plans. They seek my help in engaging other funders. I value these relationships, and many of our most successful grants come from the strength of these partnerships.
While I know every organization may not have the time or the development staff to engage funders in this way, I know others simply haven’t had the opportunity. So I’m launching Coffee & Conversations to provide dedicated time to connect with you one-on-one.
Come to introduce your organization. Come with a new grant idea. Come to update me on your work. Come to ask general questions about foundations and proposal writing. Come for the coffee. Conversations will be informal and based on your interests.
