THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Major private foundations are increasingly interested in unconventional organizations—not necessarily the largest or the oldest, but those that can prove their mettle in this increasingly transient world. Attendees should not expect proposal writing basics but a session for those who plan or have begun to engage with large funders and want more information about how best to proceed.


  • Understand the structure and traits of major private foundations and how best to work with them
  • Come away with efficient, practical steps your grants staff can take right away
  • Determine how best to evolve your organization so that it’s competitive for major private foundation funding

Intended audience

  • All levels of experience
  • Board members
  • CEOs, executive directors, upper management
  • Fundraising & development staff
  • Grant writers
  • Program directors and staff
