Funders Forums

The Funders Forum is held in Seattle in the spring and in Tacoma in the fall. During this half a day event you will get to personally meet several funders.

Here is how it works:

Grantmakers will be seated at round tables. These funders will represent private foundations, corporations, and government organizations. You will have four 25-minute sessions to hear funders discuss the basic facts relevant to their grant programs - giving priorities, deadlines, application processes, contact information, etc.

The Funders Forum is popular among grantwriters and other nonprofit staff members at all levels. For those new to grantwriting, it is a great opportunity to meet and learn from grantmakers. For experienced grantwriters, it is a chance to find out any changes in grantmaking.

What Do Attendees Love About the Funders Forum?

"Getting to talk directly with Funders - there's nothing else like it!"

"Learning nuances that grant guidelines don't reveal."

"After spending a few hours researching companies ahead of time online, it was much more informative hearing directly from the companies/foundations themselves."

"Getting funder's contact information and being invited to call/email them directly with questions."

The event often sells out. Sign up for PSGA announcements and become a member so you can benefit from priority registration and discounts.
