Philanthropy Journal Workshop Materials

What Foundations Want: Needs statements win or lose the grant

A Philanthropy Journal webinar presented on 6/16/11

A note to workshop participants: Participants sometimes ask whether I might assist their organizations with grant proposal writing, or review drafts of proposals. I would be happy to discuss this with you, if you like, and do what I can to help. Feel free to email me to discuss this further. Thanks. —Mark
