KSU Trumbull Offers Workshops for Starting a Nonprofit

WARREN, Ohio – Kent State University at Trumbull is holding two free workshops to help individuals interested in starting a nonprofit organization and attaining grants.

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

Dave Holmes, from the 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 foundations and agencies will be in attendance to answer questions about how they engage with nonprofit organizations and what funders typically look for in grant proposals. 

From 9:30 a.m. to noon on July 20, Holmes will present “Advanced Grantseeking for Government and Foundation Grants,” also in room 117 of the Technology Building.

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