Newnan Carnegie to host Grant-Ready Workshop
From Special Reports
The Newnan Carnegie Library will host a Grant-Ready Workshop on Thursday, March 5. The event begins at 2:00 p.m.
Gail McGlothin, who is a non-profit management and grant writing consultant with her company (Grant Writing Partners), will teach the class. She will help workshop attendees identify what needs to be in place to start a grant program, what foundations will fund, and where to start looking for sources of funding.
“Funding from foundations, corporations, and government grants are one way to expand an organization’s ability to serve its clients and diversify the organization’s funding base,” says McGlothin.
McGlothin has experience in all areas of non-profit management and fund development. She has been working in leadership roles in non-profits for 45 years in Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas. Gail was invited by President George H.W. Bush to work on the task force that established the Points of Light Foundation and then served on its board for four years.
This program is offered free of charge, however, registration is required. Registration is available online at newnancarnegie.eventbrite.com.
