What Fundraisers Should Know About Funders
As a fundraiser, you may wonder what goes on behind those closed doors where decisions are made about your carefully crafted requests and proposals. When the response comes, you might wonder, “What were they thinking?” This one-day course provides a structured introduction to that thinking—the ethics, procedures, approaches, and agendas of grantmakers and funding institutions. Understand what legitimate expectations you should have of them, and they of you. The course, taught by the founder of the Academy for Grantmaking and Funder Education, utilizes case studies, problem solving, and lecture methods.
