Is a radical makeover possible in funding relationships?
For some, it is already underway, but what does this mean for grant seekers and grant makers?

In this 60-minute live panel, two philanthropic leaders will delve into how funders and not-for-profit organisations are improving the relationships that add real value to grants.

Webinar participants will gain a much deeper understanding of:

  • how grant seekers and makers build and maintain strong relationships
  • understanding how trust, power, and respect can impact relationships
  • funder stereotypes and attitudes
  • actions that most hinder and most help funding relationships.
