This workshop will bring together professionals in the field of grants, including grantees, grantors, and so many other professionals who focus on helping people and agencies in need of more funding to do something positive, greater projects, capacity building, networking/partnership building, and those who are beginning a new non-profit organization. 
 
You will experience a high-energy training that will be full of amazing tools, real-life applicable examples, and experiences that will make you a strong grant writer.  You should NOT have to pay thousands of dollars to “grant writers” who can’t the get job done, who can’t guarantee their work, and who disappoint you.  Most seminars of this magnitude average $1,500 across the country, but not for you.  The cost of this seminar is only $100/per person for non-ABOH members, and $75.00/per person for ABOH certified members/volunteers.  At the conclusion of the Comprehensive Grant Writing Workshop you will be able to write grants yourself, and save the dollars you would spend on the purchase of a grant writer to go toward funding your passion. You will also find that you are well prepared and equipped to submit your grant for approval. We look forward to seeing you there!

Urgent need for foster parents in West TN


Youth Villages is looking for caring people in Shelby, Fayette and Tipton Counties to become foster parents to children who have suffered abuse, neglect, abandonment or other issues and need a home. These children need families who will care for them until they can return to their birth families or an adoptive family is found for them.

If the child becomes available for adoption, foster parents often have the first right to adopt, and adoption through Youth Villages is free. Youth Villages’ foster parents receive a monthly stipend to help them offset the costs of adding a child to their household.

Candidates should be single or married adults over the age of 25 and living in the Mid-South area who are interested in becoming foster or adoptive parents.

For more information on how you can change the life of a child, contact LaToya Maxwell at 901.252.7648. Free information sessions will be held Thursday, March 1 from 6 – 8 p.m. and Saturday, March 3 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. at 5515 Shelby Oaks Dr. in Memphis.

Youth Villages is a private nonprofit organization dedicated to helping emotionally and behaviorally troubled children and their families live successfully. For more information about Youth Villages, visit www.youthvillages.org.

Some many people have told us that for years they have been meaning to start a non-profit or they have been pulled or unctioned to start one.  Why not do it?  Money?
This workshop is designed to help people start effective non-profit organizations, shows how to get your 501c3, as well as how to write grants.  We provide a step by step guidebook that includes powerful information, examples of each segment of a grant, and we will even provide you with over 600 funders/grantors when the workshop is over.
This workshop will help you to prepare to ask the grantor for money.  There are some things you need to know before you ask.  Preparation, planning, patience…
If you are interested in getting your organization started, want to know how to write grants, or to just learn where they are, this is the workshop you have been waiting for.  Space is limited, so pre-registration is required.  Fee:  $100
