Craigslist Foundation’s take on American Idol! Develop your fundraising skills and learn how to craft a winning foundation proposal. Nonprofit Boot Camp registrants were invited to apply for a “Reality Grantmaking” mini-grant. Applicants were screened by the session moderators to ensure diversity of causes and proposal styles and finalists were selected. Listen as their proposals are reviewed and scored by an expert panel of real-world funders. The top three finishers were awarded cash grants ($250, $500, $1,000). Nonprofit leaders of all levels will benefit from this dynamic and insightful session.
