Join Philanthropy Massachusetts as we take the Meet-the-Donors program to a region that is steeped in history and home to rich cultural treasures and a vibrant nonprofit community! Stay on with us for the day if you wish for a free Introduction to Grants Research workshop taught by Philanthropy Massachusetts staff.
Our Meet-the-Donors Team includes:
John Vasconcellos, President, Community Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts
Bethany Kendall, Executive Director, Amelia Peabody Charitable Fund
Glenn Oliveira, Director of Foundation Programs, The Carney Family Charitable Foundation
Denise Porché, Executive Director, Island Foundation
Julie Ramos Gagliardi, Vice President - Corporate Giving and Community Relations, BayCoast Bank

Meet-the-Donors is useful for those who are new to grantseeking and also helpful for those seasoned pros who want to pick up tidbits of info to add to their “toolbox.” The format includes a moderated intro portion with a “kick off” question, then the attendees work in groups to develop questions that are of interest to all in their group. The audience generated questions are posed to the panel by the moderator. It’s a great time for getting first hand info from funders about their particular foundations, tips on grantseeking in general, and networking with your peers!
Then for those who want to make the most of the day – join us for a complimentary Intro to Grants Research Class taught by Philanthropy Massachusetts staff. This is ideal for those who are new to grantseeking or anyone seeking a brush up! We also cover a range of other handy nonprofit resources. Find out more about the session here.
