For Grantseekers: Meet and Understand Green Funders

For Grantseekers: Meet and Understand Green Funders

Friday, February 02, 2018, 8:30 - 10:30 AM

Our "Meet and Understand Green Funders" panel is an opportunity for nonprofit organizations to better understand how funders interested in the environment and sustainability make grant decisions. 

Nonprofit representatives are invited to hear from Maryland Philanthropy Network members. You will hear directly from the people who manage funding requests from the community and learn how they make grant decisions.

Our speakers will share information about their grant process and their perspectives on building lasting relationships with their grantees. They will provide insight into their funding decision making and tips for writing a stellar grant proposal. Structured as a panel discussion, attendees will have ample time to ask questions and engage directly with the speakers.

This panel will be moderated by Jamie Baxter, Program Director of the Chesapeake Bay Funders Network. 

Our panelists will be:

  • Jack Bovaird, Director of Philanthropy, Bunting Family Foundation
  • Cathy Brill, Maryland Program Consultant for the Rauch Foundation
  • Pete Powell, Executive Director or the Lockhart Vaughan Foundation and Clayton Baker Trust

This event is for grantseekers. Registration is from 8:30 AM-9:00 AM and the event will end at 10:30 AM, with networking until 10:45 AM.
