TVNPA Grantmakers Panel 2021Register now at TVNPA!

TVNPA is excited to present one of our most popular programs at our 6th Annual Grantmakers Panel to support organizations seeking funding through grants. Join us to explore the grant application process through the lens of experts who offer and manage grants.

Panelists will shine a light on their giving criteria and provide information about how to find the right grants opportunities for your organization and what grantmakers seek when reviewing organizations to fund. In this program, speakers will share grant requirements and insights on nonprofit funding as well as address questions from attendees.

The 2021 Panel includes people from a wide range of grantmaking organizations and foundations:

  • Nadine Horner, MBA, CAE, Lawrence Livermore National Lab
  • Allison Magee, Zellerbach Family Foundation
  • Terry Mock, Clif Family Foundation
  • C. Davis Parchment, Candid
  • Nichelle Rachal, The Clorox Company
  • Mary Anne Rozsa, Rotarian Foundation of Livermore

We all know that grant writing often involves multiple people in an organization, so be sure to have your colleagues register as well for an informative discussion and a deeper look through the grantmaker lens!
