Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Grant Me a Grant! workshop April 29

Looking for Funds for Ministry?
Haven’t Written a Grant, but Wish You Could?
Want Help Improving Your Grant-Writing Skills?

Please join us Sunday, April 29, 2-5 pm for
Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Grant Me a Grant!

This engaging workshop is an opportunity to explore different sides of the grant process — how to avoid obvious wastes of time, and how to maximize your efforts. You’ll take away some foundational knowledge of the grant-seeking process, and how to verify a good “fit” between proposal and purpose.

Beatriz "Bia" Viera, Vice President for Philanthropic Services at The Philadelphia Foundation, will be keynote presenter, and you’ll also learn with a team of accomplished grant-writers and peers in the social service and ministry sectors.

The event will be held in The Brossman Learning Center of The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, 7301 Germantown Avenue, Mt. Airy, Philadelphia, PA 19119.

Ample parking is available on campus. Directions to LTSP are here.
