This seminar will present an introduction to Corporate and Foundation Relations.  We will explain how the professional staff in CFR will help you identify potential funders and design a proposal that addresses the particular interests of the funder.  In particular, the seminar will discuss strategies for preparing the most important document of your funding proposal:  the case statement.  We will explore case statements that were successful with specific funders … and maybe a few that weren’t.

Julianne Bjarnesen, Associate Director for Corporate and Foundation Relations
