Last GFC Program of the Year: After the Grant (Setting Clear Goals and Objectives) & Grant Writing 101 Reflections

After the Grant - Tuesday Dec. 5, 4:30 (registration required)

Kent Hornberger, GPC, a member of the Board of Directors of the Grant Professionals Certification Institute and a board member of the Grant Professionals Association's St. Louis Regional Chapter, will return to Central Library for a FREE program in which he will explore how nonprofit organizations can best formulate their goals and objectives and implement an evaluation plan after receiving a charitable grant.

Participants will learn:

  • how to set clear goals and objectives before and after the grant is awarded
  • what the difference is between a goal and an objective
  • what data you will need to collect to demonstrate success and impact to your funders

This presentation should be of interest to nonprofit professionals and people who volunteer with local charities.

As noted above (& as explained below), we are requiring registration for this event. While currently scheduled to be held in the Carnegie Room on the 3rd floor of Central Library, we may move it to the auditorium on the lower level of Central if we have enough people. Please click here to register.

Grant Writing 101

We had a sell-out crowd for Grant Writing 101 earlier this month - we filled the auditorium and had to (sadly) turn people away. Because of this enthusiastic response we have prevailed upon the presenter, Amy Lottes, to return and present her Grant Writing 101 program once again. We are hoping to settle on a Saturday in January or February - watch this space for an announcement and/or the SLPL events page for registration info.

SLPL also offers lots of online learning opportunities, including several for nonprofit organizations & specifically for developing grant writing skills. Go to the link, enter "nonprofit" and you will see courses (available to SLPL card holders) such as "Get Grants!" "Writing Effective Grant Proposals" "A to Z Grant Writing" and "Becoming a Grant Writing Consultant" - new sessions starting December 13!
