Grantsmanship Training

Posted By L L Gibbs Consulting, Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the Grantsmanship Training hosted by LANO member Alzheimer’s Services of the Capital Area. 

People came from several different states, and as far away as Panama and Barbados. It was an extraordinary experience, and everyone there came away with information and evaluations which will increase the chances of our proposals being funded. Our instructor, Mary Ruth Clowdsley, was fantastic! She offered years of experience as a grant writer, reviewer, and teacher.

Thanks to Barbara Auten and her staff at Alzheimer’s Services for hosting this training. They went above and beyond in making us feel welcome and supplying us with delicious snacks! We also had the chance to visit "Charlie’s Place,” and what they do there for Alzheimer patients and their families is awesome!

Learn About Available Funding from the Coastal Communities Fund

Posted By Ryan Crespino, The Greater New Orleans Foundation, Monday, September 26, 2011

Resources Available for Nonprofit Organizations Providing Services to Those Affected by the Oil Spill in the River Parishes

Learn more at the information session to be held on Monday, October 10, 2011 from 9 to 11AM in Norco

The Greater New Orleans Foundation is hosting an information session for nonprofit organizations serving populations in Assumption, St. Charles, St. James, and St. John the Baptist parishes to determine if they are eligible to receive funding from the Coastal Communities Fund.

Through the Coastal Communities Fund, the Foundation will be awarding grants to nonprofit organizations providing services to those directly affected by the Gulf Coast oil spill. The information session is intended for nonprofit organizations focusing on mental health & wellness; social services & financial stability; and youth resiliency. This session is for the above mentioned parishes only.

River Parish Information Session
Monday, October 10, 2011
9:00AM to 11:00AM
La Maison Magnolia Reception Hall
950 First Street, Norco, LA

The Coastal Communities Fund was created after an anonymous donor established the $20 million fund for Gulf Communities through the Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors to assist people living in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas who are still struggling in the wake of the Gulf Coast oil spill. The Greater New Orleans Foundation is responsible for granting $5 million of the $20 million to nonprofit organizations providing services to residents within Louisiana’s coastal communities.
