Pre-proposal Conference:

Optional grant information sessions will be held on the dates below. Please note that participation neither improves nor harms an organization’s likelihood of receiving funding.

Registration is required.

Please take note of the following:

- Limit of two seats per organization; and, we request those attendees be the organization’s leader and Board Chair. If not available, one of the two attendees must be the leader or Board Chair.
- Due to space limitations, preference will be given to nonprofit organizations that are eligible to apply in the next funding cycle.
- Please be aware that there is a pre-session “homework” assignment that is a requirement for attendance. If you are unwilling or unable to complete the homework by the due date (shown below), you will not be able to participate. This is a firm rule since the session discussion is based on the results of the homework.
