The Successful Grant-Seeking workshop will be led by a panel of seasoned experts in the field of grant-making in New Jersey, who will provide resources, actionable steps and practical tips for real-world success in receiving funding:

Theresa Jacks, Acting President and CEO of the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers, has been instrumental in strengthening CNJG’s leadership work, building relationships with partners, and guiding policy and advocacy efforts.
