Impact100 workshop for nonprofit grant applicants
Nonprofits in Sonoma Valley may be interested in an upcoming workshop sponsored by Impact100, “Nonprofits: Articulating Program Needs and Developing a Compelling Case for Funding.”
The workshop is designed to assist Sonoma Valley nonprofit organizations in developing successful grant proposals for Impact100’s $100,000 Impact Grant and smaller Community Grants to be awarded June 22, 2013. It’s scheduled to be held at St. Leo’s Church, 601 W. Agua Caliente Road, Sonoma, on Tuesday (10/9), 3-5 p.m.
The workshop’s focus: effective use of the Logic Model in program development and funding. Guest panelists are Marla Stuart (MSW, Division Director, Sonoma County Human Services Department, Information Integration Division) and Patricia Talbot (RN, CNM, BHSA and Principal & Sr. Executive, P.M. Talbot Enterprises).
Stuart will discuss developing a Logic Model to articulate program needs and develop a compelling case for funding. Talbot will describe how to identify and approach prospective collaborative partners to create community impact. B.J. Bischoff, President of Impact100 Sonoma and a member of the Sonoma County Upstream Portfolio Review Committee, will moderate the discussion.
Following the presentations, participants will work in small groups to develop a logic model, identify prospective partners and determine how to approach them to create community impact. The workshop will also provide an overview of Impact Grant Focus Areas and the 2012-13 Grant Calendar.
The workshop is open to all Sonoma Valley nonprofits, Impact100 Members, grant makers and any other interested parties. To attend the free Oct. 9 workshop, RSVP by Oct. 3 in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
