Class/Event: Nonprofit Essentials-Grant Writing
Date: Thursday, June 15, 2017 - 12:00 PM
Location: The Winston-Salem Foundation Building, 751 West Fourth Street, Winston-Salem, NC 27101-3rd floor, Neill Board Room
Description: A practical course designed for those seeking to develop grant proposal writing skills. Participants will learn how to research funding sources and approach funders, and learn best practices for developing successful grant proposals and letters of inquiry.

Calvin Patterson will be instructing the class. He is the Chairman-CEO of
Earnest Harvest LLC (eleven years), a retired Board of Trustee/Vice Chairman for Community Relations for the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Arts Council (six years), a retired Board of Trustee/Past Secretary, Vice-Chairman, Chairman for Historic Bethabara Park (six years), and the host/producer of “Empowering You,” a public affairs radio program on WSNC 90.5 FM (eleven years).

Calvin's favorite saying is, "Luck is where opportunity meets preparation.” To that end, he has written and facilitated over 10 million dollars in grants and loans for various clients throughout the state of North Carolina.

The Nonprofit Essentials classes are taught primarily by Wake Forest University staff, faculty, and alums. Participants who finish all classes will receive a Certificate of Completion from Wake Forest University.

All Nonprofit Essential classes include a networking lunch from 12:00 to 12:40 pm. Instruction begins at 12:45 pm and will end around 4:30 pm.

The class will be held in The Winston-Salem Foundation building located at 751 West Fourth Street. Click here for a map to the building.
