New grants make it possible for cash-strapped agencies to bring important services into the community and get innovative ideas off the ground. Yet, applying for and receiving grants is a very competitive process. To helpmembers of the nonprofit community and government agencies decipher the complexities of the grantseeking process, the City of Mesa Library will be hosting the Grantsmanship Training Program November 5-9 at the Main Library, 64 E. First St. The five-day workshop will be conducted by The Grantsmanship Center, the world’s oldest and largest training organization for the nonprofit sector.

“The Grantsmanship Center is widely recognized as the premier trainer in this new profession, providing an excellent week of experience for those wishing to learn the ‘brokering skills’ necessary for grants success,”

City of Mesa Grants Coordinator Jerry Dillehay said. “It was the first place I turned for outside training when I began my new career as Grants Coordinator for the City.”

Designed for both novice and experienced grantseekers, this workshop covers all aspects of searching for grants, writing grant proposals and negotiating with funding sources. Participants will work in teams to actually develop a grant proposal.

To ensure personal attention, registration is limited to 30 participants. The program fee of $875 includes workshop tuition and one year of TGCI membership benefits and services. Fifty percent scholarships may be available for organizations with annual operating budgets under $300,000.

To register for the workshop or apply for a scholarship, log onto www.tgci.com. For more information, contact Perla Anderson at the City of  Mesa Library at 480-644-3719.
