Wednesday, February 14th - AFP of NWA Monthly Luncheon Meeting 

Register Now!  

Crafting Your Northwest Arkansas Grants Strategy,
Presented by Cheryl Kester, Owner, The Kester Group; Director of Grants, Walton Arts Center

A maxim in the grants world is that “if you’ve met one foundation, you’ve
met one foundation.” Foundations are not one size fits all, and each has
different personalities, different funding priorities, and different
application processes. Cheryl will offer a quick recap of the most
important highlights from the 2017 funders panel, including how each
foundation prefers you work with them. She then helps you analyze the
funding landscape so that you can create a strategic approach to winning
foundation grants from our regional funders.

Registration opens at 11:30 - Luncheon 12:00 to 1:00 pm
Meeting location: John Brown University Rogers Center
2807 Ajax Avenue, Suite 200
