The Ouray Public Library and the Community Development Committee (CDC) are
co-hosting a series of three grant-writing work sessions. All Ouray County
nonprofit organizations are invited to attend the free sessions, which will be
held at the Ouray Public Library. The first session is scheduled for Monday,
August 12, from 5 to 7 p.m.

According to Jen Greenholt, CDC chair, the work sessions have been planned
in response to the recent Rural Philanthropy Days held in Ouray. “We understand
that it is difficult to follow through with the grant-writing application
process, not only thoroughly, but also in a timely fashion,” said Greenholt.

“We hope that these work sessions will benefit the area’s nonprofit
organizations in obtaining grant monies.” – Jen Greenholt, CDC chair

The work
sessions are open to the area’s nonprofit volunteers, board members and staff.
“By providing an opportunity for collaboration, feedback and peer-to-peer
networking, nonprofit organizations will be better equipped to successfully
complete the grant application process,” said Maureen O’Driscoll, Ouray Public
Library director.

The August work session is the first of three to be held at the Ouray
Library over the summer and fall months. They currently are scheduled from 5 to
7 p.m. on August 12, September 9 and October 14. Anyone interested in attending
is encouraged to RSVP by calling the Ouray Library during regular business
hours (Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or by sending an e-mail to OurayPL@gmail.com.

The CDC is the liaison between City Council and the business
community.
