We've begun planning with our partner organizations for the special events/workshops to be held here during the 2010 year. Feel free to contact me if there's a nonprofit/fundraising topic you'd like to learn more about.
Speaking of learning opportunities, we now have a compilation of local sources of nonprofit and grantwriting training offered by area colleges/universities/nonprofit organizations. Call or e-mail to find out more.

- When you're looking for SGAs/RFPS, a workshop participant recommended www.grantgopher.com
