The Legacy Foundation’s Annual Funding Forum is an event that provides various opportunities for non-profit organizations in the RGV. Attendees are given information on some new projects in the RGV as well as information for the upcoming grant cycles, and changes to the grant application process. Non-profits can network with each other and hear from other Foundations that work in the Rio Grande Valley.
2019 is a very special year, as VBLF will be partnering with Knapp Community Care Foundation to present the first RGV Funding Forum and we are thrilled to bring a special guest to share her insight and passion for making sustainable change in our community.
This year we will have a new format. We have added break out sessions covering different topics for executive directors, finance and program staff and we are including one session exclusively for non-profit organization’s board members in the afternoon. The agenda will be posted later this summer. We will have a separate registration for board members opening soon.
The 2019 RGV Funding Forum is scheduled for Aug. 15th from 9:00am – 4:30pm at the Harlingen Convention Center.
Registration is open now!
You won’t want to miss our special guest speaker, Becca Stevens, Founder and President of Thistle Farms. She was also named a 2016 CNN Hero!
