For the Daily Journal


HAMLET — Richmond Community College’s Small Business Center will be offering two free seminars on grant writing on April 18 and April 20 at the Honeycutt Center in Laurinburg.

Calvin F. Patterson, chairman and chief executive officer of Earnest Harvest LLC, will be presenting the seminars, “Grantwriting 101 & 102.”

“Are you aware there are many funding opportunities for community related issues? Have you thought about applying for a grant to address those issues?” Patterson asks. “Before you leap in, it is critical to understand the principles and best practices to get the support you deserve. These seminars carefully detail the many aspects of preparing to develop a grant proposal, researching potential funders, developing a grant proposal, and needed follow up activity.”

Upon successful completion of this seminar, participants will be able to:

• Have clear understanding of steps to prepare for submitting a grant proposal;

• Utilize resources to identify and prioritize potential funding sources for grants;

• Be familiar with the typical components of a grant proposal;

• Understand the need to develop an effective team to execute the grant proposal.
