On October 11, nonprofits in western North Carolina will have the opportunity to meet and talk with foundation representatives at the 2013 Foundation Fair, hosted by the North Carolina Network of Grantmakers.
The North Carolina Network of Grantmakers (NCNG) hosts the Foundation Fair each year to provide nonprofits an opportunity to interact with and learn about foundations in North Carolina. Akin to a “college fair,” the Foundation Fair is intended to help nonprofits find and connect with foundations that have missions similar to those of their own organizations.
The 2013 NCNG Foundation Fair will be held on Friday, October 11 at the Thomas Auditorium at Blue Ridge Community College in Flat Rock, NC. There will be two sessions for nonprofit representatives to visit foundation booths. The morning session will run from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the afternoon session will run from 1-3 p.m.
More information and a list of participating foundations can be found online: https://ncgrantmakers.site-ym.com/?FoundationFair2013
Each nonprofit may attend only one session. To participate in the Foundation Fair, interested nonprofits must register through the North Carolina Network of Grantmakers for either the morning or the afternoon session. Register online at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/foundationfair2013
