Are you new to grant proposal writing or want a quick refresher? Join us for a free workshop on August 11 featuring a trainer from Foundation Center, a world leader in matching people and organizations with grant resources.

The Bellingham Public Library is hosting Foundation Center’s popular Introduction to Proposal Writing class, 1:00-2:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 11 in the Lecture Room at the Central Library. This free class will provide participants with an overview of how to write a standard project proposal to a foundation: proposal elements, “do’s and don’t’s” and follow up steps.

The class is presented by Ganga Dharmappa, a regional training specialist from the Foundation Center’s San Francisco Office. Members of the public are invited to attend, with no registration required.
