The Grantmakers-Grantseekers 2020 conference will be held online at Zoom.US. Co-sponsored by the Tu Luong Medical Mission Foundation and Seattle Mini Medical School, this is the premier conference of nonprofit leaders, bringing together representatives from both grant seeking and grant making organizations.
Online or Virtual Conference (VC) allows remote attendees to access live breakout and keynote sessions activities in real time from their computer. VC uses Google Meet and/or Zoom video conferencing services and platforms, which are compatible with most PC, Mac, Linus and smart phones with high-speed internet, recent operating systems and web browsers. Online participants have access to session materials prior to the start of the sessions. A virtual facilitator will be in the room for all live sessions, and will make sure that questions, comments, and group work are shared with attendees and session presenters.
Through the powerful collaboration with grantmakers and nonprofit leaders, our virtual conference will convene high quality presenters to deliver information-filled workshops in five tracks:
Meet the Grantmakers. Meet diverse panel of foundation representatives (family, independent, and corporate) who will present their views on establishing solid relationships with potential funders. Each will discuss their particular field of expertise with the opportunity for questions by attendees. This is everything you ever wanted to know about grantmakers—You will learn about types of foundations and strategies to effectively approach these mysterious institutions of funding. You will learn things that grantmakers hope to find in every effective grant proposal.
Fun Raising and Fund Development workshops will include grant writing, capital campaigns, the very popular “Meet the Grantmakers” forum, and much more.
Market, Media, and Technology sessions are designed to help organizations communicate effectively with members, donors, and the media to utilize technology as a mean of increase effectiveness
Nonprofit Business and Management will provide tools, techniques, and information designed to increase nonprofit organization capacity.
Personal and Professional Development. What is the difference between personal and professional development? Simply put, professional development is focused on the workplace. It’s the development of skills in relation to your job to help you keep more effective in the workplace (IT/Technology Training, Management Training, etc). Personal development is more focused on communications, time management, and things such as leadership training.
Ever wish you could relocate a course, meeting or presentation from the stuffy meeting room to the organization’s sofa? With virtual conference, you can do just that. Just make sure to bring your laptop.
