PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

This session will teach you how to find and develop materials that help your CFR office and maximize the return on your research time. Corporate and Foundation research can seems like a "Alice in Wonderland" moment -- all those grants and all that data -- how do you know when you have finished your work? This session you will hear from a professional who has worked all the angles of the C&F pipeline (research, proposal development and stewardship) and will take you through some tried and true steps to ensure you don't waste time and deliver a product that is a value to your team.


PRESENTER:

Meredith Baird Reece worked in Corporate and Foundation Relations at WGBH/Channel 2 PBS for nearly 10 years before returning to her Alma mater Simmons University to lead multiple departments including Prospect Research, Donor Relations, Communications, and Events. She now leads the C&F effort at Simmons, while working from her home office in Southern RI.
