Nonprofit Organizations Serving Tri-County Residents Encouraged to Attend
WATERTOWN — The Northern New York Community Foundation will host a pair of online information sessions to connect tri-county nonprofits with opportunities for grant funding and introduce organizations to a new online grant application program.
All nonprofit organizations, including new and seasoned grant applicants, are encouraged to attend. Each session will feature funding and partnership opportunities, best practices, and ample time to ask questions.
“It is important to the Community Foundation that it provides this information to our nonprofits at such a critical time,” said Max DelSignore, Community Foundation assistant director. “The generosity demonstrated by donors across our region has created a number of meaningful grant opportunities for nonprofits to pursue and secure support to bolster their mission and work. The proper stewardship of these thoughtful gifts makes our nonprofits, and the communities we serve together, stronger now and in the future.”
Two virtual sessions, each via Zoom, are scheduled as follows:
Grant Program Overview — Wednesday, Feb. 17, 10 to 11 a.m. Nonprofit organizations will connect with opportunities for grant funding and partnerships that impact capacity and sustainability.
Introduction to Grant Lifecycle Manager — Wednesday, March 3, 10 to 11 a.m. Nonprofit leaders will learn about the Community Foundation’s new online grant application program powered by Foundant Technologies. Foundant is a national leader offering high-level, efficient grant processing designed to support grant funders and seekers.
The Grant Lifecycle Manager (GLM) system will enhance the Community Foundation grant process for applicants, while supporting the Foundation’s standards for grant stewardship. Your agency will be able to create a single user profile in GLM, input grant request information into an online application, and monitor your progress through evaluation stages.
The Northern New York Community Foundation allows tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that serve Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence county residents to apply for grants to fund innovative programs, projects and initiatives that positively affect the quality of life in the region.
