My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Rural Development Initiatives (RDI), Coburg, OR, USA
I took part in the introduction to grant writing course provided by Meredith Howell for RDI, presented at SWOCC. The presentation of information on grant sources, how funders evaluate and select projects, and all the myriad details of the process was surprisingly comprehensive, delivered in an enjoyable way. There were many templates and example materials which served both for instruction AND for direct application later for writing purposes. I have saved all the materials and refer to them during various steps of grant application preparation. The course prepared me very well to be ready when an opportunity came to assist a community group developing a secure drug disposal program throughout our extended local area. Several others in the class have been successful in their writing for a variety of groups in the area.
