Cooperative Network of Nonprofits – May 2017 Events

The Cooperative Network is helping nonprofits, government agencies, and educational institutions secure national and federal investments. Increase your knowledge, grant capacity, proposal skills, funding leads, efficiency, and connections. 

What’s Happening

May 3, 2017 Brown Bag Luncheon

The Cooperative Network Brown Bag session for May will be about understanding and developing Logic Models. These visual summaries, often required in grant proposals, tie together the aims you are trying to achieve and how you propose to get there.

The Grant Plant’s Aly Sanchez will present key concepts and walk through an example logic model. Logic Models are also good for designing, planning, and revising programming – even when funding agencies don’t require them! Bring your lunch and gather at our office at 901 Rio Grande Blvd NW, Suite D-220 from 12pm to 1pm.

May 31, Curbside Consulting

Ever needed more eyes on your current grant projects? Come down to our office for a free consultation and we’ll match you with expert advice to talk about your project needs. Consultations occur from 11am to 1pm at The Grants Collective’s office at 901 Rio Grande Blvd NW, Suite D-220. 

June 1, Talent Academy Application Opens

In June, we’ll open the application for the next cohort of the Talent Academy. The Academy is a 6-month professional fellowship to develop skills for securing major grants. Stay tuned for more details!
