As governments cut back and donors get more selective, more and more nonprofits are turning to private foundations for support.
But attracting private foundation money is very different than seeking corporate aid or federal and state grants.
To learn how you can stand out from the competition and understand what foundations are seeking, join The Chronicle of Philanthropy for a Webinar that features insights from a veteran program officer who has reviewed thousands of proposals over the last decade. Tobi Printz-Platnick of the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation will offer practical advice for increasing your odds of success, shed light on how foundations make their decisions, and show you how to talk about your organization’s weaknesses as well as its strengths.
You’ll also hear from a fundraising consultant and author, John Hicks, who will explain how to build strong ties to program officers, demonstrate that your work aligns with a foundation’s mission, and set your organization apart from the competition.

- Do’s and Don’ts for your next grant proposal
- Strategies for improving your odds of winning support
Who Should Attend?
