PSGA Presents the 9th Annual South Sound Funders Forum

Registration is FULL! We hope to see you in 2020.

It's like speed dating for Grantwriters!

Join PSGA on Friday, December 6, 2019, at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma for the 9th Annual South Sound Funders Forum. 

Hear directly from grantmakers in an intimate roundtable format. Choose four 25-minute sessions, each led by one of our region's grantmakers. Ask about funding priorities, the application process, and how to "wow" them.

2019 Funder Selection Change: Funder selection will occur online this year! Online selection prior to the event will allow attendees more time to network with peers, and enjoy a light breakfast. The formal program will begin promptly at 8:45 AM and end at 11:15 AM. 

Registration Information

Members: $50
Non-members: $65

Please Note: 

This is not a forum for making specific pitches about your program or organization, but rather an opportunity to hear directly from grantmakers and to gather contact information for future development. 

Please read the etiquette rules for the Funders Forum. We look forward to seeing you there!
