Writing Grants for Non-Profits: A Seminar
About 150 people piled into the Dumas Center for Artistic and Cultural Development's auditorium this morning to hear speakers talk about the art and craft of writing grants for non-profits. The seminar was presented by Rutherfoord and The Hanover Insurance Company in Roanoke. The event was intended to provide non-profits with training on how to recognize appropriate grants and introduce strategic planning tools for identifying short and long-term funding needs. The seminar is one of the largest pro-bono services to bring together nonprofits from across the region to address a common challenge. It is scheduled to be presented in several Virginia locations.
