2020-2021 First Tuesdays Invitees
The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia staff invites community-based nonprofits to join us for an open discussion about what you are seeing in the community, the issues you face, and anything else that's on your mind. First Tuesdays are an indivdiual, one-on-one meeting with your nonprofit and The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia.
First Tuesdays are not intended to be an opportunity to request funds from the Community Foundation or to discuss past, present, or future funding. Rather, we want to use these meetings to build relationships, share information, brainstorm ideas, and discover new approaches or new ways of tackling an issue in a neutral, relaxed setting. Please do not sign up for a slot if you have met with Community Foundation staff during the last year.
One week prior to the meeting, please email a one-page description of your common donor requests (both monetary and in-kind), as well as what various donation amounts will buy for your clients, a general overview of your organization, and any mission critical achievements. You are welcome but not required to provide general promotional materials (annual reports, brochures, etc.) as well. Please do not feel obligated to prepare a formal presentation. All materials should be sent via email one week prior to the meeting to [email protected]
Please sign up for a 30 minute time slot below and bring no more than two representatives from your organization. Questions? Please email Jennifer Cochran at [email protected]
We are looking forward to our time together and the chance to learn from one another!
