Photos and Story by James Hill
One of the greatest challenges in the non-profit world is finding funding. Grant writing is a wonderful way to increase funding, but where do you start? Look no further than Portland Community College. This summer the college will offer a non-credit class held completely online that will teach students all they need to know about writing successful grants.
The course, A to Z Grant Writing, will cover how to research and develop relationships with potential donors. Instructor Linda Vallejo will cover how to organize a grant-writing campaign and monitor all funding sources, requests and donations. Learn how to prepare complete proposal packages and dissolve crisis management.
The class will be offered two times this summer: choose from July 18 through Aug. 24 or Aug. 15 through Sept. 21. Cost is $85. To register, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.ourcoursescometoyou.com.
