Learn how to create a winning grant proposal!   We'll look at the different types of grant proposals, the typical components of a proposal, and the steps in the process.  We'll also talk about how you can make the process as efficient as possible -- how to get the proposals out and still have time to provide services to the community!

 The class is taught by Martha Moore who worked for Associated Grant Makers in Boston and generally in the non-profit world for 10+ years.

FEATURED MUSEUMS FOR FEBRUARY

The New England Aquarium

The New England Aquarium is located in Boston, Massachusetts.  Nearly 50 years ago, the New England Aquarium opened its doors to the public. The New England Aquarium is a catalyst for global change through public engagement, commitment to marine animal conservation, leadership in education, innovative scientific research, and effective advocacy for vital and vibrant oceans.

The Aquarium provides educational resources and activities for teachers, families, kids, and adults.  Explore all that it has to offer:  Pet a sea star, meet a lobster, cradle a hermit crab in the palm of your hand, get up close to some small but mighty shark species from around the world!   In the Yawkey Coral Reef Center explore fascinating exhibits and intimate views of coral reef inhabitants. 

 

ISABELLA STEWART GARDNER MUSEUM

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (called Fenway Court during Isabella Stewart Gardner's lifetime) is a museum in the Fenway–Kenmore neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts near the Back Bay Fens.  The museum was opened in 1903 by Isabella Stewart Gardner (1840–1924), an American art collector, philanthropist, and patron of the arts.

It houses an art collection of world importance, including significant examples of European, Asian, and American art, from paintings and sculpture to tapestries and decorative arts.  It is housed in a building designed to emulate a 15th-century Venetian palace, drawing particular inspiration from the Venetian Palazzo Barbaro.  Gardner collected and carefully displayed a collection of more than 7500 paintings, sculptures, furniture, textiles, silver, ceramics, 1500 rare books, and 7000 archival objects from ancient Rome, Medieval Europe, Renaissance Italy, Asia, the Islamic world, and 19th-century France and America.  Among the artists represented in the galleries are Titian, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli, Manet, Degas, Whistler and Sargent.
