types of grants/developing an evidence-based approach
building a budget/measuring impact
finding new funding sources/creating evaluation systems
You might get a lot out of a training session that covered any of these areas, right? You might get even more out of it if one session built on the information you got in the previous session and so we’ve worked to develop a new, collaboratively-sponsored series that will provide an overview of grant proposals, help you create messaging for your project, introduce you to the Grantseekers Resource Center at the public library and share real information to help you effectively engage the right funders, donors and clients in support of your program.
Sessions are appropriate for new fundraising/program staff, board members, emerging organizations…attend one or several! Stay tuned to this space for additional topics throughout the year.
