Last year, Murray State students studying fundraising in non-profit leadership conducted a competitive grant process designed to familiarize them with what funders look for when reviewing proposals. Students then developed grant proposals, made formal presentations of their recommendations and conducted a peer review process.
The result was the ward of a $1,000 grant from the Giving Back Fund to the Murray Art Guild. Dr. Bob Long innovated this kind of class and with his wife, Patricia Mendez-Long, has made a gift to ensure its continuation. Kate Lochte speaks with Dr. David Whaley, Dean of College of Education and Human Services and Dr. Bob Long on Sounds Good.
