Volunteer West Virginia is pleased to announce Strength-Based Grant Writing Training in the Clarksburg area, May 17-19.

This hands-on, intensive training is intended to help build new capacity for nonprofit organizations. It will help aspiring and experienced grant writers approach grant writing from a strength-based perspective. Participants will learn the nuts and bolts of preparing a grant application while being guided through a process that focuses on organization strengths.
At the end of this training, participants will not only understand all the components of a grant application, but will also have a new way of looking appreciatively at what works in their organization and community.

The cost of the training is $250 for the three days and includes lunch for participants. Limited scholarships for some counties, including Clay, Braxton and Nicholas, are available.
This grant writing training is also pre-approved for up to 18.25 hours for the WVU Continuing Education Certificate in Nonprofit Management (CECNPM).

Training will be provided by Alice Ruhnke, the founder and chief operating officer of The Grant Advantage, and Trish Hatfield, president of CharacterEthics.

Registration is limited to the first 50 people.
