Hats Off to Grant Writers! by Christy Wilson of the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation (2:00pm – 3:30pm)
As a nonprofit development professional or program officer, you wear many hats. You are tasked with attracting foundation grants, corporate grants, or perhaps you specialize in government grants. Regardless of which hat(s) you wear, grant writing is an essential function for all nonprofit organizations in today’s world. We will explore what makes a good grant proposal, how to understand what the funders are looking for in a good proposal and most importantly how to tell your organization’s story.
The Drive to Thrive: Raising Resilient Kids by Larry Brendtro (3:45pm – 5:15pm)
Exciting new findings about our resilient brains are translated into practical strategies to help young people overcome adversity, heal from trauma, and develop positive life outcomes. The presenter shares insights from decades of direct experience with youth at risk and highlights his forthcoming book, The Drive to Thrive, which provides a blueprint for creating positive environments where all children and families can flourish.
