United Way Youth Services Council and Library present “How to Get a Grant”
One-Day Skills Workshop for Nonprofits set for June 6
Judith Margolin will present a day long seminar on grant writing for staff and volunteers of local nonprofit organizations on Friday, June 6, in the Greenwich Library Meeting Room. The workshop takes place from 8:30 am to 4:00 p.m. Registration for the program is $50 per person.
Ms. Margolin’s program will cover all the essential components from assessing your organization’s needs to “prospecting” – finding the right funder, to mobilizing board support, customizing proposals, and follow-up strategies. Nonprofit executives, board members, community leaders, and freelance grant writers will want to attend this informative session.
The Stamford resident served for several years as Vice President for Planning and Evaluation at the Foundation Center, the nation’s leading authority on philanthropy.
