Nonprofits can resolve to learn about grant possibilities

December 30, 2009

Do you work for a nonprofit organization in Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair, Walker or Blount counties? Has your organization ever received a grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham?

If the first answer is yes and the second answer is no, you may need to attend one of the upcoming overview sessions held by Community Foundation staff. This could be your resolution for the new year, as a way to connect your nonprofit’s work to the priorities of your Community Foundation and your community.

This is your chance to find out more about how the process works and what you can do to apply. Sessions last approximately 90 minutes and are held at the Community Foundation office, 2100 First Avenue North, Suite 700, in downtown Birmingham. The next overview session is set for Thursday, Jan. 28, 2010, at 9 a.m.

Other sessions are set for Wednesday, Feb. 10, at 9 a.m.; Tuesday, Feb. 16, and Wednesday, Feb. 24, both at 1 p.m. Seating is limited, so reservations are required by phone to 205-327-3813 or e-mail.

Include the name of your organization and the representatives who will attend. State the area you serve and whether you have ever applied for a grant from the Community Foundation before. Also list the date of the session you wish to attend.

Before the session, review the grant guidelines on the Community Foundation website. Remember, the next grant cycle ends March 15, 2010, and you must attend an overview session if your organization has never applied for a grant before.
