Congressman Allyson Schwartz is again hosting grant workshops. Sitemeter tells me these are very popular. If you're in the grantwriting business or want to be, mark your calendars:
SCHWARTZ TO HOST WORKSHOPS TO PROVIDE NON-PROFITS WITH INFORMATION ABOUT GRANT OPPORTUNITIES
On Wednesday April 6th and Thursday April 7th, the office of U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz will host two half-day seminars in Philadelphia and Blue Bell to provide local non-profits with information and resources about funding opportunities. The seminars, entitled "Government, Corporate, and Foundation Research," are targeted to staff, board members, volunteers of local non-profits, and those seeking to start non-profits.
These seminars will help organizations learn how to navigate the federal grants system, which offers more than 1,000 grant programs and access to approximately $500 billion in annual awards. The agenda also includes a comprehensive overview of navigating federal search engines, conducting foundation and corporate research, tailoring proposals to specific funding sources and an introduction to local Foundation Centers' resources.
Both events are free and open to the public. The seminars will provide the same content, but are held in two different locations to better serve individuals.
For more information, or to register for the event, please contact Schwartz’s Montgomery County Office.
