NEOEDD Provides GrantReady Training in La Grande

NEOEDD offers GrantReady on Saturdays from Oct. 21 to Nov. 11 from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in La Grande. GrantReady organizational development and grant-writing training provides tools and skills needed to help nonprofits become more competitive for grant funding, and better prepared to operate and evaluate their programs and projects.

GrantReady consists of four training sessions for volunteers and staff members of nonprofit organizations. Topics include:
• Organizational and project budgeting
• Components of a grant proposal
• Funding plan
• Evaluation methods
• Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
• Board relations
• Foundation site visits
• Grant reporting
Lunch will be provided. The first session will be at the La Grande Public Library (2006 4th St.) and subsequent sessions at OSU Extension (10507 N McAlister Rd.). The cost for the series is $100 for the first participant from each nonprofit, with a discounted rate of $50 for each additional participant. The program will be offered in Wallowa and Baker counties next year. Register at http://bit.ly/2xuhFrA

“Participants will also meet staff from several foundations, who will provide insights into their foundations and what they are looking for in a grant proposal,” says NEOEDD Executive Director Lisa Dawson. “This is a great opportunity for them to begin to make personal contacts in the nonprofit world.”

What past participants have said about GrantReady:
• “Learning about the different types of grants, (i.e., “Capacity Building,” etc.) was invaluable. Learning the correct budget submission for a grant proposal. Learning about “In-Kind” costs to add to the budget package.  Really, there is so much I learned from your class that I can’t praise it enough. I could not learn this same information any other way.”
• “The resource packets are phenomenally helpful.”
• “I benefitted from listening to other nonprofits in the class as they discussed their issues. Priceless.”
• “The feedback on my grant proposal was invaluable. What a terrific opportunity to learn exactly what a grantor is looking for gives me confidence that I can propose a successful grant package.”
• “All of the slides and handouts are going in my permanent files. Their content is excellent in directing my energy in the right direction. And I really appreciate the resources, such as the list of grant awarding businesses.”

This program is available thanks to a grant from Meyer Memorial Trust.
