Straight from the Donor: The Secrets Behind Their Support  
April 25, 2019

AFP Wico Logo (April 25 2019)

For most donors, whether it’s an individual, corporation or foundation, a strong belief in your mission and high confidence in your organization’s ability to fulfill your mission is at the core of their charitable giving decisions. Donors who represent three distinct sectors of the Williamson County philanthropic community including individuals, corporations, and foundations, will share with you the reasoning behind their donation and grant decisions, what they hope to achieve and the deciding factors on who they ultimately support. Here’s your chance to hear directly from them. You learn the inner workings on what happens after you solicit support or submit that grant proposal while learning best practices for improving your approach to solicitations and stewardship.
