Hall, Stewart : Seattle University in Washington
Mary Stewart Hall, Ph.D. is a professor and founder of the Executive Master of Not-For-Profit Leadership Program at Seattle University in Washington. She is also president of Stewart/Hall, a consulting firm serving U.S. and international private, corporate and government grantmakers. In addition, she is helping to develop a nonprofit certificate program at the University of Alaska-Anchorage and is part of its initial faculty. She writes and speaks extensively about philanthropy, writing proposals, management of not-for-profit organizations and the improvement of boards of directors. She serves on the boards of several national and local nonprofit organizations.
From 1977 to 1995 she was president and trustee of the Weyerhaeuser Company Foundation and Vice President of Corporate Affairs for Weyerhaeuser Company (a Fortune 500 forest products firm). While there, Dr. Hall wrote the second and third editions of Getting Funded.
Dr. Hall has led or served on the boards of many of this nation's major philanthropic organizations. She was Chair of The Contributions Council of The Conference Board, an elected organization of the heads of the largest U.S. corporate grantmakers; a director of Independent Sector, a national collaboration of large philanthropic and nonprofit organizations; President of Philanthropy Northwest, a regional association of private foundations and corporate grantmakers; and a participant on several committees of the Council on Foundations. She has also served on the boards of three private foundations.
Her experience with government funding sources began in 1961 while she was a legislative assistant in the U.S. Congress. She was involved in the development of much of the early educational and social grant-in-aid legislation. In 1965, she organized and directed one of the first full-time staffs devoted to securing external funds for a university. While Director of Federal Relations at the University of Oregon, she wrote the first edition of Getting Funded. In 1968, she moved into providing assistance and information on external funding for the entire Oregon State System of Higher Education.
She became Associate Superintendent of Public Instruction in Oregon in 1972 and supervised staffs that annually distributed more than $50 million in grant-in-aid. Concurrently, she taught educational administration at the University of Oregon and political science at Oregon State University. She has also served on several review committees for federal and state agencies.
She received her Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees from the University of Oregon and is an alumnus of the Executive Management Program at Stanford University's Graduate School of Business.

Having served as development director, executive director and freelance grantwriter, she has spent the last 15 years as a fundraising consultant to hundreds of nonprofits throughout the U.S. Citing her common-sense, workable responses to fundraising, board and planning challenges, funders, nonprofit leaders and development professionals count on Susan as a community resource.
Ms. Howlett led the Seattle-based Puget Sound Grantwriters Association from 1991 to 2001. During her tenure the large regional professional association sponsored over 100 programs that brought grantmakers and grantseekers together through presentations, conferences, training workshops and joint projects. The regional association of grantmakers frequently has Susan train new grantors.
Funders throughout the country engage Susan to consult with and train their grantees in strategic grantseeking, sustainable fundraising and leadership development. She speaks regularly at local, regional and national conferences.
