Charities offers Grantseeking: Goals & Objectives
A Learn with UMC Event
Camden, ME (Feb 4, 2020) – United Midcoast
Charities is pleased to announce its next free Learn with UMC event, Grantseeking:
Goals & Objectives. The workshop will be offered at 3 p.m. on Friday, Feb 28
at the Picker Room of the Camden Public Library. UMC program
coordinator Kelly Carey will offer hands-on coaching about writing a winning
grant application with concrete goals and objectives.
around the nation, funders are increasingly moving to data-informed, outcome-focused
grantmaking strategies. That means that it’s critical for nonprofits to clearly
and concretely explain what they expect to do, and why they expect their
activities will make difference to a social problem.
workshop is recommended for anyone with grant-writing responsibilities, but
especially for those who plan to apply for a UMC grant in 2020. Pre-learning resources and post-workshop
support are included in registration.
workshop is free but we request that attendees register at unitedmidcoastcharities.org/
eventsto assist in planning. Refreshments will be provided.
Carey is program coordinator at United Midcoast Charities. She is the primary
contact for questions about the 2020 grant cycle and may be reached at
207-236-2299 or kelly@unitedmidcoastcharities.
