GREAT FALLS, MT (Sept. 15, 2008) – Do you want to harness the wind using your own turbine? Do you want to learn about grant writing to pay for the purchase and installation of such a turbine? Do you have other worthwhile projects that need funding?
Attend a two-day grant-writing seminar on September 26-27, 2008, to learn the necessary skills. The workshop hours are 9:00 AM through 4:30 PM daily. The workshop is sponsored by the Montana Farmers Union, and will be held at the Ursuline Center, 2300 Central Avenue in Great Falls. The cost is $100 plus the purchase of a $33 workbook as a guide to writing grant proposals.
Attendees will become familiar with resources to research private foundations, government, corporate, employee giving groups, professional associations and others.
