    Breaking Barriers between Funders and Beneficiaries
    Nonprofit organizations depend on the financial support of foundations, corporations, and individuals to
    achieve their missions. Because of this dynamic, organizations often feel like they have to put their best foot
    forward with funders, and can’t be completely honest about their limitations, most urgent needs, and current
    challenges. Join YNPN Milwaukee for an event aimed to help open up honest conversations between
    nonprofit organizations and their donors. On Thursday, September 14th, we will be hosting a panel of funder
    leaders as they discuss their giving philosophy, what they look for in winning grant proposals, and their ideas
    about how we can navigate the complex power dynamic inherent in fundraising. Thank you to the Greater
    Milwaukee Foundation for hosting this event.
