Series designed to help rural organizations improve skills in planning, writing and attaining grant funding.
Could your nonprofit use some expert training with grant writing? “Learn By Doing –Grant Writing” is a four-part workshop designed to help beginning and intermediate grant writers working in nonprofit and governmental entities to increase their skills at developing project proposals, and successfully planning, writing and attaining grant funding.
The four-part series is hosted by the Nonprofit Board Training and Resources and The Ford Family Foundation, and sponsored by Visit Tillamook Coast. The first session is Thursday January 24, 2019 followed by sessions on February 7 and 21, and on March 7. Workshops are from 10am to 3pm and take place at Tillamook Bay Community College, 4301 Third Street in Tillamook.
The series will be taught by well-known grant writer and trainer Meredith Howell, who developed the Learn by Doing Grant Writing Series in 2010 as a way to help rural grant writers gain practical knowledge and hands-on experience.
“Our staff attended this workshop in summer of 2017, and it was invaluable to our success in being awarded several specialty grants, including one from Business Oregon,” said Nan Devlin, tourism director for Visit Tillamook Coast, which is a sponsor of the series. “We requested this workshop take place in Tillamook County because we know organizations here would benefit from the training and Meredith’s expertise.”
The cost for the series is $95 per person, and organizations are encouraged to bring more than one board member, staff or volunteer. Early registration is encouraged, as the series will be limited to 40 participants. For more information and to register, go to www.trainingnonprofitboards.org
