Fergussons: Thanks for grantwriting presentation

We’d like to thank and congratulate Lamar Morgan of CDMM for hosting a very successful presentation by Scott Ullman from the Foundation Center http://foundationcenter.org at the Greenview Restaurant in Hidden Valley Lake on Monday March 3 at 7 p.m.

The Greenview was packed with people we recognized from around Lake County. The information we received was very valuable. We learned all about what it takes to get grants from existing foundations that are created for the purpose of giving funds to nonprofit groups who need it and will use it wisely. Most of the grants given are by private foundations; not the government.

We learned that good relationships and communication skills are very important when asking for grants. A big reason that I am very happy that Scott and I attended this presentation is because I discovered that I may now be able to benefit a nonprofit group that I belong to in Santa Rosa called Connections www.connectionsca.com! One of my friends and past co-board member has a good working relationship with Bill Gates ... I think he may have some grant funds available!


Anyway, thanks again Lamar!


Scott and Linda Fergusson live in Middletown.
