Join us at the April education session presented by the AFP Northeast Indiana chapter.

Date: April 11 at 12:00 p.m.


Location: Parkview Field Suite Level Lounge


Lunch will be served starting at 11:30 with the program beginning at noon sharp.


Session Overview:

A good story can be the difference between a grant acceptance and a “try again next year” letter. But how do you find that story, and then tell it to vastly different funders? Are you even asking the right funders for support?


This session will walk you though a proven process to pinpoint the story you need to tell your funders, answer the questions they want answers to – whether they are family, private, or corporate foundations, or even government agencies.


You’ll also learn how to use character and page limits to your advantage when every word counts.
