EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS AND
DEVELOPMENT DIRECTORS
Thurs. Sept. 28, 5:30-7:30pm

1. HEAR FOUNDATIONS TALK ABOUT WHAT THEY FUND
Take advantage of this offer to attend a FOUNDATIONS PANEL DISCUSSION, Thurs. Sept 28, 5:30pm, organized by our member the Association of Fundraising Professionals - Fairfield County Chapter (AFP-FC). Two of the three panelists are from arts foundations and should surely interest our constituents.

The panel (Eileen Wiseman, The Tow Foundation; Nancy von Euler, Fairfield County's Community Foundation; and Heather Pontonio, The Tremaine Foundation) will explain what they look for when deciding which nonprofits to partner with and fund. Discussion will include:
  • Foundations’ current funding priorities and types of funding (general support, project, capital, etc.)
  • Foundations’ application process and what information is required, i.e., a Letter of Inquiry first, a formal application, an online application, etc.
  • Which important elements do foundations look for in a charity—innovative projects, new organizations, etc.
  • What the foundations prefer to see in grants regarding organizational and project outcomes/outputs.
  • Expectations regarding project budgets and other financial information.
