It’s time for Meet the Funders 2010!

Registration opens today and the list fills up fast! Don’t miss your opportunity to Meet the Funders.

For the second year, the panel portion is  open to MORE participants. Register to hear a panel of funders answer questions about grantmaking even if you will not be attending the “speed-dating rounds.”

The most important thing to remember is that to attend both the Panel Discussion and the Meet the Funder sessions you MUST register for each separately.

We’re happy to be your hosts for our favorite annual program!

What is Meet the Funders?
This annual event provides nonprofit executive directors and grant writers an opportunity to hear from a selection of area foundation representatives. We’ll kick the morning off with a brief Panel discussion headed up by area foundation executives in the Library’s Auditorium. The event concludes with the Forum, also known as “speed dating” rounds where two funders will speak directly to small groups of grant seekers. Use this unique opportunity to meet local funders face to face and ask directed questions about their giving practices.

Which local Funders are attending?
We hope to provide this information as the event draws near. We do have confirmation from at least one new foundation attendee as of this post.

Will food and drink be served?
We are not able to provide refreshments this year. You may purchase coffee, other beverages or refreshments at Dunkin Donuts. No food or drink is allowed in the Auditorium. If you arrive at registration early, you may take food or drink to the auditorium’s lobby, where you can chat with your grant seeking colleagues.

Meet the Funders owes its reputation to the dedication of our local foundation representatives and their enthusiastic attendance. If you have the chance during the event, please let the funders know how much you appreciate their efforts to attend and share information about their work.

Please note, registered attendees will receive important information about the day, including library parking within two days of the event at the email address submitted at the registration link.
