SLPL Jan. 5 Grantseeking Basics Update

To Anyone who attended the Jan. 5 session:
Thanks for your patience and concern when that event was cut short by my faint. I am well and grateful for the quick and excellent care I received. The G&FC here is fully operational again. The class will be repeated in its entirety on April 21. In the meantime, I invite you to come by Schlafly to talk one-on-one with me or other G&FC staff about how your organization can use our Foundation Center and other resources to advance your grantseeking efforts. (If possible, bring your handouts from the class.)
