Are you looking to improve your fundraising skills and enhance your ability to help nonprofits do good?
Are you an aspiring social impact or nonprofit professional looking to develop skills while contributing to the sector?
Are you an expert advisor looking to learn about and advise new and exciting social enterprises?
Become a member of the evaluation committee for the Unfunded List and join us for our Summit on September 22 at George Washington University. We will convene for the day on campus for a day of inspiring and educational panels, fundraising training sessions, and the opportunity to provide your own expert opinions and advice to some of the world's most innovative new startup nonprofits.
We'll begin the day with an inspiring welcome and morning panel. We'll then breakout into training sessions, feedback groups and other activities before reconvening for an afternoon of informative sessions and panels led by leaders from the social sector.
And at the end of the day we'll celebrate with some wine, snacks and everyone leaves smarter, happier and with a new professional headshot.
Who should attend?
Members of the Unfunded List evaluation committee, experts looking to learn while contributing to the growth of startup nonprofits and anyone with an interest in learning more about grant proposals, startup nonprofits, philanthropy or social enterprise.
Do I have to evaluate proposals to attend?
That is what we do but you can definitely attend without evaluating. You'll just participate in the training activities and other panel instead. We have something for everyone. We do encourage you to read a few proposals though. We know you'll enjoy it.
