Young Nonprofit Professionals Network & Opportunity Knocks host an event that will explore the often tricky relationship between grantseekers and grantmakers. Writing a solid proposal isn’t always everything. As you’ll learn from this engaging session presented by John Hicks, President & CEO of the New York City-based development consultancy firm, J.C. Geever, Inc., obtaining or renewing philanthropic funding means much more than simply presenting a well-written proposal. Successful development professionals today build relationships with grantmakers to establish trust and respect, understanding and cooperation. Learn how you can engage grantmakers and form lasting relationships that will keep your nonprofit’s funding coming back year after year. Date: November 1, 2011 | Time: 6:30-8:30pm Address: Support Center for Nonprofit Management 305 Seventh Avenue, 11th Floor, Conference Rm New York, New York Map and Directions Price: $10.00 To learn more and register, click here.

New York Meets National JAG When: Monday, September 26 from 6-8 pm Where: Philanthropy New York, 79 Fifth Avenue, 4th Floor, New York, NY 225 What: An opportunity to learn about the national Joint Affinity Groups (JAG), NY-area JAG, and chances to engage in joint work. See below for more details. You’re probably familiar with the Joint Affinity Groups (JAG) through the annual holiday party that occurs in New York. But did you know there’s a national JAG? There is, and it’s been advocating for equity in philanthropy for the past 18 years. It’s led by the national leadership of the affinity groups that many of you belong to: Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP) Association of Black Foundation Executives (ABFE) Funders for LGBTQ Issues Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP) Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP) Women’s Funding Network (WFN) National JAG has engaged in plenty of work over the years, but hasn’t had the opportunity to meet with members of local JAG groups. It was operated solely by the voluntary efforts of its members until a year ago, when a grant from The California Endowment helped it to follow through on plans to strengthen the coordination and leadership of its work.
