On Feb.7, nearly 100 individuals representing a wide spectrum of nonprofits attended the “Meet the Grantmakers: Effective Funding Strategies for Nonprofit Organizations.”
Those in attendance learned about the various guidelines the presenting foundations have, how they function, what they fund, and best practices for nonprofits to position themselves to be awarded a grant.
The event, held at The Reef, was organized by Councilman Curren Price’s Business Resource Center (BRC) and is a part of his ongoing efforts to empower local entrepreneurs and nonprofit partners to better serve the South LA community.
“As Councilman for the 9th District and Chair of the Economic Development Committee, I am keenly aware of the role our nonprofit community plays throughout the City,” Price said. “Our nonprofit partners function as a shadow government in supporting, developing and inspiring our residents in ways that local government sometimes cannot.”
