I want Juneau residents who work for nonprofit organizations and government agencies to know about a wonderful opportunity for themselves and their respective groups.
REACH and the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council are hosting a five day workshop by the Grantsmanship Center, which focuses on all aspects of applying for and administering grants from government and the private sector.
I took this workshop in 1979 when I was working at KTOO, and was able to immediately apply the skills and knowledge gained during the workshop, writing several successful grant applications for the station.
I later was able to apply those same skills when writing professional services proposals for several employers and my own business, as well as in the preparation of business plans for clients seeking venture capital.
Any nonprofit or government agency would benefit from sending a staff member, board member or officer to this workshop. Scholarships are available for small organizations that qualify.
Information about the workshop is available from Nancy DeCherney at JAHC by calling 586-2787, or by contacting the Grantsmanship Center at (800) 421-5912. You also can visit the Grantsmanship Center Web site at www.tgci.com
