Nonprofit Leaders Conference coming to Ocean Shores

October 7, 2013

The Grays Harbor Community Foundation announced that the 5th Annual Nonprofit Leaders Conference for Coastal and Southwest Washington is next week. The two-day conference will take place on Monday and Tuesday October 14th and 15th at the Ocean Shores Conference Center.

This year the Conference will focus many sessions on Grant Writing, finding available Grant Funds, and how to find funders that are right for you and your organization.

The Ocean Shores Friends of the Library began the conference to research and write grant applications to fund the capital project to expand their building in 2009. They found that there are few experienced “grant-writers and researchers” in Ocean Shores or even in Grays Harbor.

“Many of these non-profits are small, all-volunteer organizations that are trying to go good in our communities, with little or no training and few if any resources,” according to Jim Daly, Executive Director of the Grays Harbor Community Foundation.
For the third year in a row there will be a grant awarded to a non-profit present at the conference. $1,000 will be presented to the winning application, and all applications will be used to guide a discussion on what to do and what not to do when writing and submitting grants. Applications must be submitted prior to the conference so that a panel may read and offer feedback during the session. Application guidelines and materials are available on the website http://www.nonprofitleaders.info or by e-mailing cassie@gh-cf.org.

Early Bird registration is $35 and Scholarships for Registration fees and accommodations are still available.
