4th Annual Nonprofit Forum

Registrations are closed for this event

Thursday, March 30, 2017
A continental breakfast will be served beginning at 8:00 a.m.
Holiday Inn: Wilkes-Barre – East Mountain
600 Wildflower Drive, Wilkes-Barre

We encourage all 501(c)(3) public charities who provide services to Luzerne County residents to apply; however, our Grants Distrbution Committee will only invite 33 charities to make a formal 5-minute presentation at the Forum.  Five minutes could earn a grant for your organization.

Only those 33 finalists will be eligible for general funding consideration in 2017.  Because of our new grantmaking strategy, we will make fewer grant awards, but for more significant amounts with a $5,000 being the average size.

Millennium Circle and Health related grant cycles remain the same and will be availed in August of 2017.


Forum Timeline/Deadlines:

Now through March 6th – Application Phase
March 6th – Deadline for Application Submission
March 7th -16th – Grant Committee Review & Delibrations
March 17th – Notification sent to 33 Finalists with Forum Commitment Forum, Participation Guidelines and time of your scheduled presentation.
March 24th – Power Points Slides (optional) and Forum Narrative (required)  and Signed Forum Commitment sent via email to diane@luzfdn.org. No submissions will be accepted the day of the Forum.

Day of the Forum:

Please plan to arrive 20 minutes prior to your scheduled presentation time.  This will help us to eliminate any gaps in our programming.

We encourage every participant to stay for the entire Forum if possible. There will be photo and networking opportunities as well as a chance to meet some area funders who may be in the audience. We cordially invite your Board Members to attend as well.
