Finding Funders (by user request!)

May 9, 8:30 a.m., Zoom

Certain grant-makers and private foundation donors may align well with your organization’s mission - but how do you ferret them out? How do you search for new grant opportunities? How do you make a genuine connection with the funder? Please join Marissa Heim, Philanthropy Director with CASA of Brown County to talk about the process of finding funders who might be interested in your cause and how to approach them.
