PRODUCED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
Join two of the Pacific Northwest's most successful grant writers PLUS representatives from Meyer Memorial Trust, The Oregon Community Foundation, and the PGE Foundation for a highly engaging workshop that will help position your organization for increased funding.
For over 30 years, Rick Levine has provided “insider” expertise to training participants on every aspect of successful grant seeking, including the topics of grant research, proposal development and funder relationships. In 2014, professional grant writer Eli Levine joined Rick to help update the curriculum and support the facilitation of each workshop.
More than 7,000 people have attended Rick's workshops.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Nonprofit professionals, board members, independent contractors, and others who wish to position their organizations for increased grant funding.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
How to identify potential funders, write a compelling letter of inquiry, and integrate grants funding into an organization's overall fundraising plan. Both foundation and corporate giving opportunities are discussed in depth.
The culmination of the workshop is a 90-minute panel discussion with individuals from Meyer Memorial Trust, The Oregon Community Foundation, and the PGE Foundation. These influential, thoughtful and responsive foundation officers will discuss how to most effectively present a nonprofit’s case in a competitive funding climate, following by an audience-led Q&A session.
WHY WEBCAST THE EVENT?
We believe all nonprofit organizations serving the Pacific Northwest, including those situated in rural and remote communities, should have equal access to meaningful training opportunities.
Additionally, the recorded webinar can be purchased and accessed later (for six months) by anyone anywhere who is unable to attend the live event.
WHY ATTEND THE EVENT IN PERSON?
First, you'll meet great people. The connections and networks that are discovered and built during events often prove just as valuable as the content itself. But don't worry, the content will be great too.
Second, from 3:30 - 4:00 PM, live event attendees only will have a special chance to meet individually with foundation representatives. Are you planning to submit or have you already submitted an application to Meyer, OCF or PGE? This is your chance to introduce yourself and ask a specific question.
Third, those watching the live webcast (versus attending in person) may submit their questions and comments online in real time, but questions and comments from live event attendees will be prioritized.
Finally, lunch boxes from Tamale Boy will be available. Need we say more?
