- Find the best funding sources
- Find what funders actually look for when reviewing grant proposals
Date: Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2013
Time: 9:00 am —11:00 am
Place: New Castle/Henry County Public Library Auditorium
Cost: Free but reservation required (RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org)
This basic skills workshop will cover each component (measurable objectives, methodology, evaluation, e.g.) and what should or should not be put in each of these focused areas. Learn how funding sources review your proposal and their reasons for saying either “congratulations” or “we are sorry to inform you.” Also, discover a variety of ways on how to research funding sources that are a match for your non-profit group.
