Over 100 nonprofits and faith-based organizations will have the opportunity to take part in a groundbreaking symposium that will bring Indiana state agencies and nonprofit professionals together to talk about resources and community improvement.
This inaugural event will be held Aug. 1, 2012 at the Ivy Tech campus in South Bend. The day will bring together leaders in the nonprofit sector, grant professionals, and state employees.
This Government Grants Symposium is made possible through a collaboration between the Indiana Nonprofit Resource Network (INRN) and the Indiana Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives (OFBCI).
As an interpersonal extension of the OFBCI’s first in the nation, virtual resource – the One Stop Shop web portal – the Government Grant Symposium will include an array of agencies that are part of the web-based utility. Over 10 agencies will have staff members on hand to talk about grants and present related information.
“INRN is excited to be partnering with the OFBCI to bring this learning opportunity to nonprofits in northern Indiana,” said Denise Lamphier, Northern Regional Director of INRN. “Information on government funding sources is requested often by nonprofits in our regions. Giving them the tools and information to navigate through the processes will be immensely valuable.”
