Is There a Grant for That?

November 12, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Tuesday, November 12, 2019 9:30 AM–12:00 PM  Main (Oakland)

There are plenty of myths and misconceptions surrounding grants, and confusion about whether there are grants available for individuals to start-up a small business or nonprofit.  This presentation will address these issues and also provide scenarios that prove the exceptions and reinforce the importance of being resourceful in pursuing your plans.  We will discuss: (1) differences between grants and other funding options such as loans and crowdfunding; (2) how to recognize grant schemes and scams on the Internet; and (3) resources for getting your plans off the ground.

This presentation is for anyone who wants to learn more about grants and other funding.  Takeaways include PowerPoint notes, start-up plan worksheet, and a resource list for further assistance.

Our speaker is Katherine F.H. Heart, GPC, M.Ed., President of Heart Resources, LLC.  She has offered comprehensive grant services resulting in $22+ million for Western PA organizations since 2002.  Katherine has provided grant training at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, and local/national organizations for 11 years.  She earned the Grant Professional Certified (GPC) credential and was the first person designated an Approved Trainer by the Grant Professionals Association.  Katherine is the author of GrantepreneurTM-Getting Started in a Grant Career and Business (Red Engine Press, 2016), and a Co-Organizer of the Grants Café.

There is no fee to attend this program.  However, space is limited and registration is required by calling the Nonprofit Resource Center at 412.622.6277.
