Susan Shiroma, Senior Librarian of the Foundation Center, will instruct participants on how to communicate with funders and prospective funders in the interest of building nonprofit - philanthropic partnerships. Shiroma will help attendees learn important skills involved in raising money from foundations through hands-on exercises and will cover the key stages surrounding the grant proposal process.

This workshop is co-sponsored by Citi Community Development and NPCC, and will help build the capacity of community development nonprofits that serve low-to-moderate income individuals.

Please note this workshop is an INTRODUCTION to working and communicating with funders. If you have extensive experience in fundraising, you might want to consider sending a staff member that is new to the topic of foundation fundraising. The Foundation Center also offers more advanced workshops on preparing and submitting foundation proposals.
