If you are involved with a nonprofit organization in the Greater Rochester, New York region, that provides services for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities, you may want to get this event on your calendar!
The Disabilities Giving Circle is offering a free grants training session to help your nonprofit prepare a top-quality grant proposal for the next grant funding deadline in early 2018. Presenters will be Dianne Newhouse, Co Chair of DDGC and Margit Brazda Poirier, Owner and Grant Writing Consultant Grants4Good LLC.
What is the Disabilities Giving Circle (DDGC)? Family and Friends of people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) have banded together to use their passion and expertise to form a Giving Circle. A Giving Circle is a group of like-minded people who pool their money each year and decide together how it should be spent. Since 2015, the DDGC has funding over $93,000 in innovative projects that promote independence and an improved quality of life for their loved ones.
WHO should attend this workshop? Do you have a new idea that could make a significant impact on the lives of adults with I/DD? If so, the DDGC would like to support your successful proposal by providing you with more information and resources.
WHAT will be covered at the training? We’re hosting a complimentary Grant Writing Workshop that will help you to understand:
- Our focus on innovation
- Our target population
- Use of the Rochester Area Logic Model and the Common Application
- Measurable outcomes
- Sustaining your efforts
