||Non-profits learn about writing grant requests
OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) — Operating non-profits like United Way or the Boys and Girls Clubs takes a significant amount of money, usually in the form of grants.
That's what several members of some non-profit organizations are learning about this week in Oxford.
Michael Dozier of CHL Non-profit is teaching the class the ins and outs of writing a grant request.
He says requesting a grant is like writing a college paper.
"You gotta make sure you write it well, it's presentable, and that you leave a good positive impression of what you're writing, and the reviewer honestly understands what you're trying to do. That ensures a smooth process," said Dozier.
The class goes on through tomorrow. The Mississippi Center for non-profits organization partially paid for the
non-profits to attend.
