College of the Canyons will host a free fundraising seminar, “Meet the Grant Makers,” from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Oct. 28 at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center. A pre-seminar reception begins at 10 a.m. and a question-and-answer session with the presenters will follow.

Fundraising experts Sara Montrose from the Weingart Foundation and Jolene Chavira from the California Community Foundation will discuss successful grant ideas and proposals that could benefit local nonprofit agencies and educational institutions, including K-12, community colleges and four-year universities in the Los Angeles area.

“‘Meet the Grant Makers’ is an opportunity for local nonprofits to learn about private grant relationships from the foundation representatives themselves,” said Elana Edelstein, a grant writer at COC. “Attendees will gain valuable information on the types of projects that funders find most compelling and learn the best ways to build a relationship with a prospective funder.”
