Webinar: Engaging Next-Generation Board and Staff at Foundations

Tuesday, February 25, 2020 (2:00 PM - 3:00 PM) (EST)


We are in the midst of the most significant "changing of the guard" in the history of US Foundations as next generation leaders assume key staff and board roles. Learn how to best engage them - from initial contact through the submission of your proposal - to gain their attention and trust and secure crucial grant support for your organization. Participants will learn: 

- How to communicate effectively with next-gen foundation leaders; 

- How to adapt your grant writing to best get your message across to next-gen staff and board; 

- How to build and steward relationships through multi-channel communications; 

- What new grantmaking strategies next-gen leaders are employing and how to position your charity to respond
