Grants training workshop offered


PIQUA — The Edison Foundation’s Academy for Community Leadership is pleased to announce that it will once again be offering its popular fall speaker series. The first of three events will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 12 at the Piqua campus.

The Grants Training Workshop will begin with a focused and thought-provoking discussion and workshop with a panel of area foundation executives and will continue with grant research training provided by the Edison Library, which is a Funding Information Network Partner of the Foundation Center, whose mission is to strengthen the social sector by advancing knowledge about philanthropy.

Leading the session are Cheryl Stiefel-Francis, Miami County Foundation; Christy Prakel, Darke County Foundation; Karen Wendeln, Piqua Community Foundation; and Melissa Kleptz, The Troy Foundation.

The Academy for Community Leadership exists to strengthen not-for-profit organizations by providing quality educational and training opportunities. This is made possible by support from local community and family foundations.

The cost to participate is $15 per person and includes lunch. Registration is preferred by August 7 to ensure a seat. For more information or to register, contact Julie Slattery at 937-778-7805 or [email protected]
