Whenever possible, grantseekers are advised to contact a grantmaker before sending a proposal. Preparing for that initial contact and determining what to say is all part of building a relationship with a prospective funder. Poor preparation or lack of it can undermine your efforts and even your organization.
Marilyn Hoyt, nonprofit executive, consultant, and trainer, will answer questions about the right and wrong ways to approach grantmakers during all stages of the funding request process. UPDATE: Meghan Mucklow Petranotonio, Grants Manager for SunTrust Bank's Foundations & Endowments Specialty Practice, will be our second expert panelist and will provide a unique viewpoint from her role in representing several different foundations.
