Setting up and managing a nonprofit organization is very different from a for-profit business. There are literally millions of dollars available through both government and private agencies and foundations for non-profit entities. Identifying those that might apply to your specific business is important. Understanding and following their individual requirements, however, are essential to successful presentations. This seminar is designed to explain and prepare you not only setting up a nonprofit business, but also for the grant proposal process. Anyone new to the grant writing process should attend this seminar.
