Thank you for this opportunity to meet the funders and other nonprofits, we are new to the area, but not as a NFP, great words of wisdom!

For Q and A -
Kathryn Swanton - CNM
01:09:12
We will have about 10 mins for audience Q&A starting at 4pm so please add your Q's to the chat!
Harriet Schiftan - Gilda's Club
01:09:55
Do you prefer to fund deep or wide, meaning a lot of one-time grants, or select long-term partners?
Alyssa Dituro- McNeilly Center for Children
01:11:32
Yes, major deserts here
Kathryn Swanton - CNM
01:13:08
Thanks @Harriet
Melanie Barnett - Room In The Inn
01:13:58
In response to the pandemic and limited onsite volunteer opportunities, we created an education series for families, educators and students to learn more about the circumstances around homelessness. Each lessons include engagement for the group including "give back" opportunities they can do as a small group or family.https://www.roomintheinn.org/education-series
Melissa Houck, Heritage Foundation
01:14:24
Do you have marketing arms in addition to grant/foundation support or are all of your nonprofit partnerships rolled into one request?
Lorraine McGuire - Sexual Assault Center
01:16:41
This is for Herbert. You mentioned doing projects with staff, for community service. Is that your staff providing the expertise on small construction projects and our staff working alongside? Or your staff volunteering with out staff on simple projects, like clean ups or painting?
Tucker's House/Wendy
01:16:42
Tucker's House families needed us more during this time as they didn't have services they normally would have in the home. They were really stuck at home. We keep our volunteer groups small and our families have been welcoming to us being in their homes to make them safer and more accessible.
Susannah - she/her - Plant the Seed
01:16:47
Q for Terry Vo (and others, perhaps): How would your team feel about a remote volunteer opportunity? Supplies and instructions are provided; volunteers assemble kits.
Isabelle Bryan
01:17:21
Hello, Isabelle here representing Hope for Justice, an anti-trafficking non-profit. A question for our panel: What are your funding preferences : core vs projects grants? Thank you
Alyssa Dituro- McNeilly Center for Children
01:18:36
As we focus on the zero to three sector and building brains early in life, how are our funders hoping to invest in our youngest citizens and their families as our city continues to grow?
Dwight Johnson - Preston Taylor Ministries
01:20:34
Hi Dwight here from Preston Taylor Ministries: in the space of after school, what impacts are you looking for in grant proposals from organizations working directly with children and teenagers? How would you measure or look for effectiveness in a proposal?
Harriet Schiftan - Gilda's Club
01:22:18
thank you all for your thoughtful answers!
Dara Bacon, The Arc Tennessee
01:24:37
Good afternoon. The Arc Tennessee would like to know if the panelist would share more about previous funding choices and if they applied more toward new initiatives or programs that are already established hoping to maintain momentum?
Isabelle Bryan
01:29:26
Thanks to the panel for answering our question.
Robin Nobling NAMI Davidson
01:29:29
For Herbert or others - do you engage in Individual Placement Support (ISP) programs for persons managing recovery in mental health or co=occurring disorders? We would like to look at establishing a relationship as we are developing programs before defining any financial support needs.
Karen Kaiser
01:30:42
Thank you all for taking the time to share your insights with us. Always so valuable.
Megan McGuire, Community Resource Center
01:30:52
Megan McGuire here from the Community Resource Center. For the entire panel - what's the best (or your preferred) way for new-to-you nonprofits/organizations to introduce themselves and begin that relationship-building process with you without necessarily filling up your inbox/voicemail?

Great - thanks!
Tessa Lemos Del Pino
01:35:28
Tennessee Justice for Our Neighbors provides humanitarian-based, immigration legal services. Because of client confidentiality and because of the trauma our clients have experienced, volunteerism is limited, but if any of you have general counsel who would be interested in our work, we would love to connect. Our client cases often take years. Do you see multi-year grants in your future opportunities?

01:47:19
Agreed- when you have an Executive Director that is essentially serving as full-time Executive Director, full-time Development Director, and full-time Program Director all in one it can be difficult to stay on top of everything.
