Register for a workshop

December 13, 2017

Back in June, we shared the news that GAR Foundation will be narrowing its focus with the goal of deepening our community outcomes. We also announced that part of this strategic shift will include an opportunity for grantees and nonprofits to attend a number of Technical Assistance workshops and seminars to help nonprofit organizations in building their capacity to adapt to a changing funding landscape.

Based on your feedback, we have a number of sessions available this year and early 2018. These are free workshops and all of them will be held at GAR at 277 East Mill Street. Please take a moment to read about each of these sessions on our website by clicking on the session title below to ensure you’re sending the appropriate person from your organization.

Because space is limited, priority is given to GAR’s grantees. Therefore a password is required to register. If you are interested in this seminar but did not receive an invitation to register, please contact us at and we will notify you if spaces become available.
