Build Awareness, Champion Your Cause; Marketing for Nonprofits

Just as any successful business, non-profits want a loyal customer base.

CCCF is so very happy to bring Erik Peterson to share his expertise with local nonprofits.   Erik’s passion is community organizing and coalition building.   Working with unions, nonprofits and community coalitions, beginning with Wellstone Action, he provides strategic planning, communications and messaging.     You can learn more about Erik on his company’s website:  www.btastrategies.com

Brown Bag Lunch: CCCF Grant Request Refresher

Cook County Higher Education and The Cook County Community Fund

Wednesday, April 1st from 11:30am-12:30pm

@ Cook County Higher Education 300 West 3rd Street Grand Marais

The Cook County Community Fund (CCCF), an affiliate fund of the Duluth-Superior Area Community Foundation (DSACF), reminds area non-profits that the deadline for submitting 2015 grant proposals to the Fund is May 1, 2015. The Cook County Community Fund supports projects in the arts, community development, education, environment, youth, and human services. Established in 2003, the Cook County Community Fund is entrusted with the responsibility to enhance the quality of life of the residents of Cook County and the surrounding areas.  Grants generally range from $500 to $2,500.  The CCCF and our partners at the DSACF have recently made substantial changes to simplify the online grant application process.

An April 1st workshop will be held to explain these changes and make sure you have the appropriate resources and training to apply for funding. It will be an opportunity to view the new system, hone your grant writing skills and ask questions about the process or the funds available. Although attendance is not required to be eligible for funding, it is recommended and we would love to have an opportunity to meet you.  If you are unable to attend, much of the same information is available on the DSACF website.

The workshop will be in Grand Marais over the noon hour on April 1st. This will provide just enough time to submit an application before the May 1st deadline.
