March 2018 Grant Award: Nonprofit Training Windfall

| Updated March 18, 2018

Let MissionBox help cover the cost of your nonprofit training needs!

If you are like most small or midsize nonprofit or charity leaders, you would welcome the opportunity to offer additional training opportunities to your staff or volunteers.

According to two separate 2016 and 2017 studies conducted by Tallman Insights Inc., nonprofits reported that accessing high quality, ongoing training was one of their biggest challenges.

MissionBox is dedicated to providing education and connections to nonprofits. This month, MissionBox is offering two $1500 cash grant awards (USD) to the nonprofit or charity who can best describe their requirement for providing training to members of their team and the difficulty of finding extra funding to address that need.

All you need to do is follow these two easy application steps:

CDST (US) on March 25, 2018, Central Daylight Savings Time (US). The awards will be announced at 10:00 A.M. CDST on March 28th, 2018 on the MissionBox Power FaceBook page.
