Get the Inside Scoop on Fundraising During Grant-Writing Seminar
Representatives of non-profits who would like to boost their organizations fundraising ability should plan to attend a unique grant-writing seminar at College of the Canyons on Monday, Nov. 17.
Meet the Grant Makers will do more than demonstrate the ins and outs of successful grant-writing it will allow participants to meet face-to-face with the people who authorize such financial awards. The free seminar is designed specifically for local non-profit organizations and higher-education institutions.
Discussion will focus on the criteria used by charitable foundations when deciding which organizations will receive their financial support.
The panel of grant-making experts will include Elisa Callow, program officer for the Ahmanson Foundation; Mark Eiduson, program director for the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, and Adrienne Wittenberg, program officer for the S. Mark Taper Foundation. They will share their foundations funding priorities and grant-making guidelines, as well as participate in a question-and-answer session.
The seminar is scheduled 10 a.m. to noon in Room R-206 of the colleges library, 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road, Santa Clarita. A pre-seminar reception will be held at 9 a.m. Parking will be available in the colleges South Parking Lot.
