MARCH 23, 2017 | The Center for a Better South will offer one-day grant-writing courses on April 20 in Bamberg and April 21 in Yemassee to help organizations improve skills for seeking federal funding available through the S.C. Promise Zone.
“The response to our February and March grant training sessions in Allendale and Walterboro was so great that we needed to schedule two more classes to meet the demand,” said Andy Brack, president of the Center for a Better South. “With the tools that participants received in these sessions, we hope more people will apply for various federal grants that are available to organizations and communities throughout the Promise Zone to accomplish area entrepreneurial goals.”
NOTE, 3/27: Both of the classes below are filled. However, we encourage you to sign up to be put on a waiting list because spaces may come available. If you don’t get in the class that you want, we will give you a first chance to sign up for our next series of grant-writing classes.
April 20 training to be in Bamberg
Noted grant-writing professional Patrick Patterson of North Carolina will lead an all-day class at the Bamberg County Public Library in Bamberg on April 20, 2017. He will focus on how to write compelling grant applications and find funding opportunities.
April 21 training set for Yemassee
Patterson will offer a second all-day training session at the Lowcountry Council of Governments’ board room near Yemassee on Friday, April 21, 2017. It will be the same class offered on April 20.
