Grants To You offers free seats in classes

Grants To You has started a new program that offers a limited number of free seats in grant research and writing to those who are on disability, to those in poverty, receiving unemployment or who have had their benefits terminated and to those who wish to learn a new job skill in order to reenter the workforce.

For questions, call Paul Baskin, founder and president, at 928-458-7796. All other registrants will be volunteering for a nonprofit of their choice and will pay $40.

The next scheduled class will be on Sept. 22 and 29 (two sessions required) from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Glassford Hill Middle School, 6901 Panther Path, Prescott Valley.

Online classes are available immediately.

Grants To You has received a $2,500 grant from Wells Fargo Bank to support this new program — providing free training in grant research and writing to individuals who are unemployed, underemployed, receiving unemployment benefits or have used up such benefits, or who are seeking to learn a new job related skill.

Wells Fargo has been supporting GTU through its grant funding for eight years, enabling graduates to win over $4 million in grants for a nonprofit(s) of their choice.

Grants To You thanks Wells Fargo for its support, adding that “We would also like to welcome our new teacher Jane Lerette and our new area coordinator, Ericka Dahm,” a news release states. “These ladies have amazing backgrounds and will provide high quality training and service.”
