Center to assist nonprofits seeking grants

The Donors Collaborative will join the Associated Grant Makers (AGM) and the Oak Bluffs Public Library to create a grant resource center, whose aim is to help nonprofits and their members with the difficult challenge of finding grants.

The grant center is expected to open in March, according to Peter Temple, executive director. Funding is from a grant from the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation.

Mr. Temple said the center will provide access to complete AGM and Tower Foundation databases and other resource materials, as well as grant writing and research workshops.

“To help non-profits get the most out of the center, we will have trainers available on site to help them with their research and writing,” said Mr. Temple.

The Donors Collaborative is currently recruiting trainers. Mr. Temple said applicants would receive free professional instruction in grant writing and research, in exchange for a commitment to volunteer to help at the center.
