WKU’s ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships continues its Summer Workshop Series July 20 with Is Any Money Out There?, a grant research workshop. Participants from across the region have attended the previous two workshops titled Working with Diverse Communities and Major Gifts and Capital Fundraising. The ALIVE Center staff looks forward to keeping up the same pace with the grant research workshop.
In the spring of 2011, WKU’s ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships surveyed area leaders to identify the four best topics to assist in professional development with campus and community partnerships. Those topics became the Summer Workshop Series, and the ALIVE Center offers the free workshops for up to 40 members of the regional community.
With the nation’s growing desire to help others, the Center’s staff realizes that nonprofits and individuals may find themselves looking for grant resources to finance their endeavors. Seasoned grant writer Carrie Barnette will discuss how to identify possible grant opportunities for projects and organizations. In addition, she will talk about forms of research, local grant research resources, search techniques, and other ways to help identify the perfect grant opportunity. Barnette serves as Executive Director of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association, and she plans to begin teaching Grant Writing in the spring.
Is Any Money Out There? will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 20 at the ALIVE Center at 1818 31W By-Pass in Bowling Green. Any individual interested in attending the workshop should register online. Registration will be accepted until the workshop reaches capacity.
