Grant writing workshop offered at CMCC


AUBURN — The Corporate and Community Services Department at Central Maine Community College will offer a three-day Grant Writing Workshop on Fridays, Oct. 27, Nov. 7 and Nov. 14 from 9 a.m. to noon.

This introductory workshop, focused on preparing proposals for funding nonprofits, is designed for both beginners and more experienced practitioners who seek to build a stronger knowledge base.

Participants will learn how to identify prospective funding sources and how to build a plan to seek support. The workshop will also cover the fundamentals of project design and preparing effective proposals. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in an interactive and “hands-on” learning experience.

The program will be facilitated by Christos Gianopoulos, who has decades of experience in personal and professional development, project direction, leadership of community initiatives, and teaching. A graduate of Bowdoin College, he also holds graduate degrees from American University and Syracuse University.

The cost of the program is $149 and includes materials. For more information or to register, contact Corporate & Community Services at 207-755-5280 or 1-800-891-2002, opt. 7, email [email protected] or visit
