Writing a successful grant

Hutchinson Center holds workshop on nuts, bolts and assembly of grants

BELFAST - The University of Maine Hutchinson Center will hold a certificate program in grant writing Aug. 12 and 13. Writing Winning Grant Proposals: Nuts, Bolts and Assembly is the fifth session in the eight-part 2013 Nonprofit Certificate Program.

For many nonprofit volunteer and community based organizations, funding is raised primarily by grant awards from foundations. Some may be government based, while others are from the private sector. Regardless, competition for funding from these sources remains fierce. Research programs and graduate and doctoral students also compete for the same funding. The key to winning out is a well-rounded grant.

Maine Jewelry and Art to occupy space that allows for workshops

BANGOR Having a place to display the unique and exquisite pieces of handcrafted jewelry, pottery and accessories has been great for the owners and consigners at Maine Jewelry and Art, but something was missing. 

Amanda Coburn explained that she and her fellow owners have always enjoyed teaching people their crafts, but they are often working out of their own, smaller workspaces in their homes. In Coburn's case, her workshop is situated in her garage, which can be a little cold in the winter.
