The 2019 Meet the Funders panel will have representatives from Arkansas Arts Council, Walmart Foundation, United Way, Arkansas Humanities Council, The Nadine Baum Trust, and Bentonville Soup. The Panel will answer questions from the audience, communicate to potential grantees what information is important to them as a funding organization and discuss some best practices and common mistakes of submitting grant proposals. There are a few new faces on the panel this year to make the event a well-rounded learning experience about how foundations serve a community.

Coffee will be available in the lobby at 8:30 a.m.

This event is organized by a Funding Information Network partner.
