Plan to attend RSVP’s VEC Spring 2019 workshops on April 26 and May 21.

MEET THE FUNDERS: A Moderated Panel Discussion Friday, April 26th 9:30 am to noon

Get inside the heads of decision makers of several foundations that fund locally. Learn how foundation leaders view the issues facing our region; how they make strategic funding decisions and determine desired outcomes and what they really want from their nonprofit partners. The 90-minute presentation, moderated by Margaret Brenner, VEC Program Manager, will be followed by an audience Q&A session, and a 30-minute “meet and greet”.The interactive Funders’ Panel will discuss current and emerging trends in foundation and corporate philanthropy. It will give participants a window into the grantmaker’s point of view and provide valuable information about the state of philanthropy and what each funder looks for in a fundable program.
