Missing a Cat? “The attached photo is of a cat that’s been coming around for the past week (6000 block of Illahee Rd). First day it showed up it was skittish and hungry. Since, it’s coat has been getting dirtier and she is more defensive; maybe getting used to being outside.” Let us know if this is your cat so you can be reunited.
Thank you for attending the Kitsap Sun’s “Our Big One” forum at the Admiral Theatre on Tuesday!

I would like to cordially invite you to attend a very special Grantseeking workshop at the Sylvan Way branch of Kitsap Regional Library Tuesday, April 23 from Noon – 1:30 (it’s fine to bring and eat a lunch). Details at the end of this message.
This Grantseeking Basics workshop is intended for representatives of nonprofit organizations, whether new to the process or ready for a refresher that not only includes insider tips but the introduction of powerful newly available online tools, training and resources for grantseekers available now through the library at no charge to you, including:
· suggestions for getting ready to seek funds, which includes knowing what funders look for in a nonprofit organization.
· how nonprofits are supported, with detail on the types of grantmakers and why it’s important to know about them.
· tips on the funding research process and finding funding partners.
· information on the Foundation Center resources, and how you can use them effectively to help you in your funding research.
· how to access other training classes and free online webinars and print resources for more topics and in-depth training
If you are a nonprofit, be sure to send someone to this class, you’ll be glad you did! Please share this invitation/email with everyone you know who might benefit.
There is no formal sign-up process, but I’d greatly appreciate an email reply, to get an idea how many are attending.
If you cannot attend, I would like to make an appointment to see you either here or at your office, to introduce you to the new resources and support available to you as a nonprofit, at the library. These are powerful and worth your time. I look forward to meeting you.
