Local nonprofit employees can learn the ins and outs of grant writing at a day long seminar on Friday, June 6, at Greenwich Library, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Judith Margolin will cover all the essential components from assessing an organization’s needs to “prospecting” — finding the right funder, to mobilizing board support, customizing proposals, and follow-up strategies. Nonprofit executives, board members, community leaders, and freelance grant writers are encouraged to attend this informative session.

Ms. Margolin is a Stamford resident who served for several years as Vice President for Planning and Evaluation at the Foundation Center, the nation’s leading authority on philanthropy. She is the author of several books, including The Individual’s Guide to Grants and Financing a College Education.

She has also served as editor of multiple editions of the Foundation Center’s how-to books, including Foundation Fundamentals, Guide to Proposal Writing, Grantseeker’s Guide to Winning Proposals, and After the Grant.

To register, contact United Way’s Jenny Byxbee by May 29 at 203-869-2221 or [email protected] Registration for the program is $50 per person.

The workshop will be held in the library’s meeting room.
