Grant Seekers Training for Area Non-Profits
On Friday, June 15th, two “Philanthropic Quest” training sessions will be offered at the Oregon Tech Library to area non-profits looking to improve their grant-application skills.
The training sessions will provide a hands-on introduction to the Funding Information Network, a nationwide database of over 140,000 foundations, corporate giving programs, and grant makers in the United States. Multiple filters and an assessment tool help grant seekers quickly identify their best potential funding sources.
The Oregon Tech Library is a Funding Information Network partner. Karen Kunz, Information Systems Librarian at Oregon Tech, will conduct the two training sessions on June 15th at Oregon Tech, located at 3201 Campus Dr., Klamath Falls. The first training will run from 9:00 am - 12:00 am, and the training will repeat from 1:00 pm- 4:00 pm. Over the noon break, registrants from either the morning or afternoon sessions may network and enjoy refreshments. The two training sessions are identical, so there is no need to register for both.
Registration for the training sessions is required and each session is limited to 25 participants. To include as many non-profits as possible, each organization may register two participants. The registration deadline is June 11th. There is a $10 registration fee. To register, go to klamathcommunityfoundation.org and click on “Event Tickets” or contact Heidi Neel Biggs by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Philanthropic Quest workshops are a collaborative series sponsored by the Klamath County Library Foundation, the Klamath Community Foundation, and the Oregon Community Foundation. The series is aimed at increasing the number of successful grant proposals prepared in the Klamath Basin.
