NLADA 2018 Annual Conference Panel - Building Sustained Partnerships with Funders, Contributors, & Supporters

Identifying priority needs of your organization and then matching those to the right funder is an art. But once you have decided on who is the best fit, how do you get the funder’s attention? What are the elements of a good pitch or proposal? And how do you know how best to steward that contribution and keep the relationship with your funder fresh? In this session, we will explore these questions and more from the perspective of funders, including foundations, corporate partners, and individual philanthropists. There will be time for audience questions at the end, so please come prepared.

Featured on the panel (from left to right): Max Laun, Vice President & General Counsel, Arconic Jo-Ann Wallace (Moderator), President & CEO, National Legal Aid & Defender Association Jack Londen, Partner, The Morrison & Foerster Foundation Sandra Ambrozy, Senior Fellow, The Kresge Foundation
