What does it take to build a strong relationship with funders? What elements does a successful grant proposal have? How can an organization best convey its program's alignment to the foundation's investment priorities?
These are some of the questions that a group of funders will address at this year's third annual Washington State Charter School Association Conference. In the breakout session "Best Practices in Funder Relations," ECMC Foundation's senior program director Kyle Miller will join other grantmakers to provide recommendations and tips for organizations interested in exploring strategies that will help them get noticed by grantmakers, write a successful proposal and develop strong relationships with funders.
Drawing from nearly 10 years of experience in philanthropy and over 20 in the education sector, Miller will share these tips:
The annual conference in Washington brings together national, regional and local experts in the education sector and is a great opportunity for charter school leaders, teachers, board members, parents and advocates to network, learn and celebrate the major wins and milestones achieved towards growing the charter movement in Washington State. The event this year will include engaging keynote speeches and meaningful programming, covering topics including teaching and learning, policy and law, community/family engagement, advocacy and communications.
