IDEAS & INFO Luncheon on Foundation Funding
Building relationships with funding institutions is one of the most critical development activities for nonprofit organizations. Our next IDEAS & INFO Luncheon will focus on Foundation Funding Opportunities and include a chance to meet the funders.
We are thrilled to welcome three prominent foundations: the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, the Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation and the Greater Washington Community Foundation.
- The Greater Washington Community Foundation is the largest funder of nonprofit organizations in the region with nearly $7 million in gifts and grants to Prince George's County nonprofits in the last year and a half.
Presenter: Dawnn Leary, Senior Community Investment Officer.
- The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation awards approximately $100 million annually. They have seven areas of giving: Older Adults, Workforce Development, Education, Disabilities, Basic Human Needs & Health, Veterans, and General Community Support.
Presenter: Jonathan Hornstein, Program Associate.
- The Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation is focused on eliminating racial disparities in housing, employment, education, and asset building. After a period of invitation-only grant applications, the Meyer Foundation now is accepting new applications.
Presenter: Julian Haynes, Maryland Program Director.
