Piedmont Community College’s Small Business Center will offer a free seminar “Introduction to Nonprofits and Grant Writing,” on Thursday, February 25 from 1-4 p.m. at the Business Development and Entrepreneurship Center, 105 N. Main St., Roxboro.
Setting up and managing a nonprofit organization is very different from a for-profit business. There are literally millions of dollars available through both government and private agencies and foundations for non-profit entities. Identifying those that might apply to your specific business is important. Understanding and following their individual requirements, however, are essential to successful presentations. This seminar is designed to explain and prepare you not only for setting up a nonprofit business, but also for the grant proposal process. Anyone new to the grant writing process should attend this seminar.

He has held virtually every sales, marketing and executive management position with Fortune 500, mid-sized and small businesses throughout the Southeast. He has been a small business developer and owner for over twenty years.
