In the field of fundraising, we are adept at building authentic relationships with donors. However, aside from the touch points of research, submission of grant proposals, and the report, very little is focused on developing relationships with funders such as community foundations. Given that community foundations partner with nonprofits to advance social causes through generous investments, building relationships should be a standard inclusion within a development plan.

AFPNEO is proud to bring together a panel of Northeast Ohio leaders to discuss how to build strong relationships with community foundations:

  • Dawn Moeglin, Facilitator
  • Brian Reitz, Akron Community Foundation
  • Melanie Garcia, Wayne County Community Foundation
  • Jason Weiner, Cleveland Foundation

As a bonus, a round-robin and continental breakfast will take place before the panel session, allowing participants to meet and spend one-on-one time with each of the community foundations. If you are interested in the Round Robin portion, please arrive and be ready to meet with the foundations by 8:15 a.m.

Full participation in Building Relationships with Community Foundations + Round Robin is applicable for 1.0 points in Category 1.B -Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification.
