Great idea for everyone in the Not-for-profit sector.



very interesting

Sounds Great.

I wonder if they have funds available for school events.

Wonderful idea!

Definitely feel free to ask when you attend. You will have time to look for funding for your specific needs during this session - and you'll learn what sponsors might be out there to help with your school events.


We can show you how to find grantmakers that express interest in funding school-related events/programs. We will use this as one example during the demonstation portion of the program...

Great Idea
