Kent State Trumbull Offers Workshops for Individuals Who Want to Start Nonprofits

This summer, Kent State University at Trumbull and its Gelbke Library have assembled two free workshops to help individuals who are interested in starting a non-profit and attaining grants.

“Is Starting a Nonprofit Right for You?” will be held on Tuesday, July 11 from 9 a.m.-Noon in room 117, Kent State Trumbull’s Technology Building, located at 4314 Mahoning Ave. N.W. in Warren.

Dave Holmes, Cleveland Lead at Foundation Center Midwest, will help participants understand the business aspects of a nonprofit, the vital role of nonprofits in our community, advantages and disadvantages of forming a nonprofit, how to get started and common misconceptions, and alternatives to starting a nonprofit.

Local funding foundations and agencies will be in attendance to answer questions about how they engage with nonprofit organizations and what funders often look for in winning grant proposals.

On Thursday, July 20, Holmes will present “Advanced Grantseeking for Government and Foundation Grants.”

Participants will learn the best ways to enhance grantseeking using the Foundation Directory Online. Library staff will share grant research secrets, tips, and tricks to help individuals find funders.

This workshop is 9:30 a.m.-Noon and it will also be held in room 116, Kent State Trumbull’s Classroom/Administration Building, located at 4314 Mahoning Ave. N.W. in Warren.

Registration is required for each workshop.
