This question is for Ms. Wiggins: are you open to sponsoring workshops or conferences? If so, how can we apply?
Gilda's Club Middle Tennessee

Ms. Wiggins, can you be more specific about what are your objectives for disease management funding?

Kathryn Swanton - CNM (she/her)
01:12:25
Video's, pictures, invitations to events... love this!
ValenciaBreckenridge
01:12:31
This is to the funders: Do you welcome a return proposal the following year from an organization you have denied the year before (barring blatant ineligibility)? What is the best thing an organization can do for reconsideration?
Kathryn Swanton - CNM (she/her)
01:13:30
Great one Valencia!
Kathryn Swanton - CNM (she/her)
01:15:55
Please add any additional questions to the chat for our amazing panelists!
HG he/him/his
01:18:58
Nashville Launch Pad is interested in developing art therapy to increase mental health outcomes for our unhoused guests. Might that interest Humanities TN?
Ben Tyson
01:22:05
Our organization has a single purpose (providing free meals). How can we apply for grants that are project or program focused? It can be hard to get a foot in the door with funders due to our singular mission & focus in food security
Kathryn Swanton - CNM (she/her)
01:22:29
I'll also say this goes the same for a Salute award too. Just because you weren't a finalist one year doesn't mean you shouldn't reapply! Please re-apply!!
ValenciaBreckenridge
01:22:37
Thanks funders for your answers!!! Jackson your daughter and I should start a "Valencia" club. Whoo hooo!
ValenciaBreckenridge
01:23:17
Funders do you typically let people know the particular mark that they missed?
Lauren LaViola
01:23:35
I love Valencia, Spain, Does that count? ;)
Joan B iphone 13
01:23:36
Thank you for your thorough and thoughtful responses.
Kathryn Swanton - CNM (she/her)
01:25:31
We'll have a few more mins for questions so add them in the chat!
Jennifer Chalos
01:26:19
Thank you for doing this and for all that you do to make our communities thrive.
Sarah Katherine - Cheekwood
01:26:19
I have to leave early for an on-site event, but thank you for a wonderful conversation!
Amber Hardin
01:27:00
Does Memorial Foundation offer support for capital campaigns often?
Kathryn Swanton - CNM (she/her)
01:27:07
Look for the rest of the recording tomorrow Sarah!
Gilda's Club Middle Tennessee
01:27:39
It seems like there is a trend towards less reporting and streamlined applications to ease staff time capacity to apply for grants. Are you modifying your processes or have you already done so?
Wendy Williams
01:29:41
Do you recommend professional grant writers or letting someone in house, learn this process?
Kathryn Swanton - CNM (she/her)
01:30:35
Thanks Wendy!
Lauren
01:31:21
Apologies if this was already asked- How important is appreciation on social media?
Lauren LaViola

I have to run. Thank you for all you do, EVERYONE on this call. We're in this together and we got this! Keep up the great work and make time for yourself to rest and reboot 💜
Kathryn Swanton - CNM (she/her)
01:31:45
Oh Lauren that's always my favorite question!
Wendy Williams
01:31:59
Any other advice for brand new organizations just starting this process?
Kathryn Swanton - CNM (she/her)
01:32:36
Yessss!!!!
Lisa Wooley
01:38:08
Thanks to all the funders! I have to go to the next meeting. We appreciate all the information.
ValenciaBreckenridge
01:39:31
Funders given the amount of applications you have to read, does font size matter?
