If you have an interest in grants or fundraising, go to the link provided below to find out when and where conferences are scheduled to learn more about requisites in federal funding (if you cannot make the one in Indy next month). Conferences are organized regionally through the Faith-Based and Community Initiatives entity, which offers a newsletter to be noitified of events. “Compassion in Action”.
By the way, I write grants if someone needs assistance.
We do have a lot of benefits in the USA!!

This conference is part of a new series of regional conferences in partnership with states across the country. These events are designed to connect effective social service organizations with resources that can strengthen and expand the services they offer to the people they serve.
As in the past, this conference will provide an understanding of the President’s Faith-Based and Community Initiative, information about the federal grants process and funding opportunities, and the basic legal responsibilities that come with federal funding. In addition, special emphasis will be placed on opportunities for partnership at the state and local level. They will also offer practical information on the grant-writing process, share successful practices from other organizations, and facilitate opportunities to network with government officials.
Visit the conference section of http://www.fbci.gov/ to learn more about the conference workshops.
We very much hope you will be able to join us in Indianapolis!
