Finding Funding

On Thursday, July 22, you're invited to attend "Finding Funding - An Overview of the Grant Seeking and Grant Writing Process" workshop. It will be held in the Conference Room at Ridgewater College in Willmar. Sponsors include Willmar Area Community Foundation, Southwest Initiative Foundation and Bremer Bank. Registration starts at 8 a.m. and the workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost is $59. There are still some spots available and we're hoping to fill up this workshop.

The target audience is those who are looking to increase their skills & knowledge of finding appropriate funders and writing good proposals, as well as those who have some experience in grantwriting, but appreciate local/regional opportunities like this workshop to keep in touch with the latest trends & tips.

Representatives from the Willmar Area Community Foundation, SW Initiative Foundation and Otto Bremer Foundation are looking forward to meeting you on the afternoon funders panel. You'll gain insight into how each funder's proposal review and decision-making processes work; what their funding priorities are; and how to make your best case for a grant. And get your questions answered too, either during the panel Q&A, or after while visiting with the panelists.

We all know it's competitive out there in trying to land a grant award for your organization. Those who get funded don't do it by accident. Here's an opportunity to invest time in learning and growing, as well as meeting local/regional funders who provide thousands of dollars in grants to nonprofits in southwest and west central Minnesota.
