Here's what you told us:

  • The variety of classes taught by professional and approachable instructors have been very helpful. These instructors were available during class time, and made themselves accessible after class time as a resource to help as needed. The Foundation Center has helped me personally as a board member to understand my role in our organization.
  • The Foundation Center provides opportunities to learn about new funding sources and board development opportunities. These items help our nonprofit achieve its goals.
  • During a training class, I drafted a grant proposal for the NEA. After that, I formally applied to the NEA and received a grant for $10,000 for that project.
  • Your Intro to Proposal Writing helped me to wrap my head around what it means to write a grant as I was just starting out. It was a great introduction to something that was very new to me!

Thanks again for taking our survey. We appreciate the feedback! We'll be back for another close-up next year.
