Duplin Foundation for Youth Advancement Offers Grantwriting Workshop

The Duplin Foundation for Youth Advancement will offer a half-day grantwriting workshop, “The ABCs of Grantwriting,” for local nonprofits on Thursday, October 18, in Kenansville.

    Ruth Peebles, the founder and president of The INS Group, will teach participants about the grantsmanship process – from foundation research and cultivation to the development and writing of a winning proposal.  She will discuss the typical questions funders ask when considering a proposal and the criteria used, and provide tips for ensuring grant compliance and improving chances of future grants.

    “The Duplin Foundation for Youth Advancement (DFYA) is pleased to sponsor this workshop as a way to support nonprofit organizations in our community,” said Ed Emory, a member of the Foundation board. 

     The fee for the workshop is $25, and seating is limited.  To register for the workshop, please email plawler@nccommunityfoundation.org or call 910-509-7256 by Tuesday, Oct. 16.  Pre-registration for this workshop is required.
