100+ Women Who Care La Plata

We are excited to announce a new partnership with 100+ Women Who Care La Plata. This is a collective giving group of caring women who will certainly make a powerful impact on local nonprofits by pooling their donations to support La Plata County organizations.

Grant Writing 101 – postponed

The grant writing workshop for Archuleta County nonprofits will be rescheduled.

In an abundance of caution, all unessential meetings at the Pagosa Springs Medical Center have been postponed to protect patients and the public. 

Therefore, PSMC cannot host the Grant Writing 101 class, which was scheduled for March 26.

We will reschedule the training for a later date, to be determined, when health and public safety conditions improve. If you have already registered for the workshop, you will receive an email with the new details soon.

$15, includes lunch. Class is limited to 25 people

March 26, 9:30 AM – 2:30 PM | Pagosa Springs Medical Center Board Rm

This training gives an overview of grant writing, teaches participants how to match their needs to funder priorities, highlights what should be included in each grant component, and provides tips and tricks for success.

Topics include:

  • Research and grants management
  • The grant proposal, budget and attachments
  • Getting a grip on goals, activities, objectives, and measurements of success
  • Insider’s view: what happens after you submit your grant
  • The reporting process

If you work for a nonprofit organization, city, county, or state government, a tribal organization, or a school or school district as a grant writer, you will benefit from this training!
