Quigley Hosts Grants Workshop for Local Non-Profits

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local NewsCongressman Mike Quigley played host to a Grants Workshop attended by nearly two-dozen local not-for-profit organizations, including performing arts groups, schools and cultural organizations.

“In these difficult economic times, I want to help ensure that community organizations providing important programming and services in Illinois’ Fifth District have the information and resources they need to succeed,” said Rep. Quigley. The workshop, which took place at the Center on Halsted, was conducted by Donors Forum and focused on helping grant writers at smaller local organizations improve their skills and better navigate the often-complex private foundation giving application process. In addition, advisors discussed the impact of networking, strong public relations, and advocacy on the grant process.

Donors Forum is a well-known resource for networking and education, information and knowledge, and leadership and advocacy on behalf of philanthropy in Illinois. As a membership association of grantmakers, nonprofits, and advisors, Donors Forum serves its constituents by promoting an effective and informed philanthropic and nonprofit sector.
