California State Library Offers Riverside-Area Public Libraries and Nonprofits Full Scholarships for Grants Training
RIVERSIDE, Calif. – The California State Library will provide a limited number of Riverside-area public libraries and nonprofit organizations with full scholarships to The Grantsmanship Center’s acclaimed five-day Grantsmanship Training Program.
WHERE: Main Library, 3581 Mission Inn Avenue, Riverside, California 92501
WHEN: February 3-7, 2014
“Knowing how to identify and pursue grant opportunities is crucial to the success of our public libraries and other nonprofits,” says Tonya Kennon, Director of the Riverside Public Library. “That’s why the California State Library is footing the bill for nearby public libraries and nonprofit organizations to participate in what has been called the ‘gold standard of grants training.’ Nonprofit and government organizations in the U.S. and abroad regularly pay $895 or more to send staff to The Grantsmanship Center’s 5-day training programs.”
In this comprehensive, hands-on training program, participants learn and practice:
- using The Grantsmanship Center’s model for developing a grant proposal—a model so effective that many funders have adopted it as the format for their own grant applications
- developing a budget that answers the questions all funders ask
- identifying the grantmakers who are most likely to fund their programs
- identifying print and electronic resources at the library to assist with grant research and development
Full participation in the Grantsmanship Training Program is applicable for up to 33.0 continuing education points in Category 1.B – Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification.
Participants receive 12 months of follow-up support from The Grantsmanship Center, including one proposal review and full access to the Center’s databases of foundation, corporate, and government grantmakers.
