UU Grant Writing Workshop Fundraiser – Begins January 20th!

Don’t miss out on this amazing offer – Workshop begins next week!

The Fundraising Committee is excited to announce a golden opportunity to raise money for UUCSS.  Paul Mastrodonato, one of our UU members and founder of Nonprofit Works, a training and consulting business, has very generously offered to teach a series on grant writing for nonprofits with the money raised ($100 per participant) coming to UUCSS. With the potential for up to 40 participants, this could be a tremendous assist to our fundraising. Crucial to the success of this venture is the role we are asking  each of you, our members and friends, to assume in this fundraising effort: to be our publicity committee. We are asking each of you to forward the information below about this opportunity (see below for suggestions) to anyone you know who works at or volunteers for a nonprofit. Since this will be an online series of five 90 minute lectures and Q&A sessions to take place on 1/20, 1/22, 1/25, 1/27, and 1/29 from 2 to 3:30PM, you can let people in other states and even in other countries know of the workshop. We need your help. 

Please do what you can to spread the word of this workshop. If you have questions, feel free to contact Bev Lawson 518 587-0403.
