Betsy McNamara
Principal, Senior Consultant
Full Circle Consulting

With over twenty years of nonprofit fundraising and campaign management experience, Betsy has raised more than $10 million for community investments that have improved the lives of low-income and disabled populations, constructed community arts facilities, and secured underdeveloped farmland from future development.

Registration for this conference is now closed. 

Designed for both novice and experienced grant seekers alike, the NH Grants Institute is a comprehensive and interactive 3-day workshop—from Tuesday, July 30, to Thursday, August 1—that covers organizational readiness, pre-grant planning, grant identification, strategy, relationship development between grantor and grantee, proposal writing, collaborative grant development, the review process, and forging effective relationships with funders.

Workshop participants will learn from experts in the field and hear from the funders themselves how to make the most of the opportunity to win grants.

Luncheon panels provide an excellent opportunity to network with NH funders.
