Michigan Nonprofit Organizations urged to attend Grant Workshop in Detroit

Michigan nonprofit organizations are encouraged to attend the fifth annual “Funding Resources Face-to-Face” at the Bishop Charles H. Ellis, III, Conference Center at Greater Grace Temple in Detroit on October 14-15, 2009. 

Sponsored by the Detroit office of U.S. Senator Carl Levin, D-Mich., the Michigan Nonprofit Association, and seven other organizations, the two-day workshop will offer attendees the opportunity to learn some of the best practices for nonprofits, including budgeting basics, developing a strong funding proposal, and using social media tools and networks to help their organization.  

Participants can also receive “curbside consulting” – the opportunity to bring in a grant proposal and receive free feedback and recommendations from professional consultants. 

On Wednesday, October 14, 2009, the workshop will run from 8:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. with a luncheon keynote address by Dr. Geneva Williams, founding president and CEO of City Connect Detroit.  

Some of Wednesday’s sessions include: Key Elements to Proposal Development, Prospecting, Writing a Fund Development Plan, Board Development, Writing Needs Statements, and Trends in Social Media.

Thursday’s workshop will run from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. with a keynote luncheon address by Gail Perry Mason, Senior Director-Investments of Oppenheimer & Co.  Representatives from state and federal agencies will participate in morning and afternoon sessions about funding opportunities in their agencies. 

The day will close with a roundtable discussion with representatives from several foundations. 

Participants can register for either or both days of the workshop. Registration rates are $35/day for members of the Michigan Nonprofit Association or $45/day for non-members.  The discount for two-day registration is $60 for members or $80 for non-members.
