Rick Levine, Grant Writer & Trainer
Candy Solovjovs, Program Team Manager, Meyer Memorial Trust

Join Rick Levine, one of the Northwest’s most expert grant writers, and Candy Solovjovs, Program Team Manager, Meyer Memorial Trust, to learn what foundation and corporate grant makers expect of experienced grant writers. You’ll see examples of successful proposals and receive direct feedback about your own proposals while working in small groups with expert program officers, including:

  • Candy Solovjovs, Meyer Memorial Trust
  • Jan Kennedy, M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust
  • Cindy Knowles, The Collins Foundation
  • Martha Richards, James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation
  • Megan Schumaker, The Oregon Community Foundation
  • Louis King, Spirit Mountain Community Foundation
  • Bart Hadder, M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust

You’ll also get to meet some of the major foundation trustees who make the final decisions on your proposals, and learn how and why they make their funding decisions. The Trustee Panel will include:

  • John Castles, M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust
  • Debbie Craig, Meyer Memorial Trust
  • Julie Vigeland, Wessinger Foundation, Jackson Foundation
  • And, you’ll get a chance to learn from the following professional grant writers:

    • Rick Horton, President, OR/SW Washington Grants Professionals Association
    • Michael Wells, Principal Consultant, Grants Northwest

    This workshop will be an extraordinary opportunity to hear from the leaders of Oregon’s foundation world!

    Preparation

    Each participant should bring eight copies of a two page Letter of Inquiry (LOI). Refer to the LOI Guidelines for specific formatting instructions. Foundation representatives ask that participants view this as a learning opportunity and suggest that people not bring material that has already been highly successful.

    Additional Information

    This workshop is designed specifically for experienced grant writers who have written at least three grant proposals.

    Offline Registration
