CAMDEN — United Midcoast Charities offers its next free Learn with UMC event, Grantseeking: Goals and Objectives. The workshop will be offered Friday, Feb. 28, at 3 p.m. 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.
All 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, according to UMC, in a news release.
This 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.
The workshop is free but attendees are requested to register at unitedmidcoastcharities.org/events to assist in planning. Refreshments will be provided.
Kelly 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
