MATAMORAS — The Greater Pike Community Foundation will host the 21st annual Community Workshop for non-profit organizations at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 9, at the Best Western Hunt’s Landing in Matamoras.
Following a continental breakfast and a report from the Foundation on its recent activities, each non-profit present will speak briefly about its organization’s programs and activities. This is an excellent opportunity for local charities to network, spread the word about their work and foster collaborative solutions to address needs and challenges in our community.
The presentations will be followed by a mini-workshop on the Foundation’s grant-making guidelines and processes to assist non-profits in completing applications for funding.
Reservations are requested. RSVP to or call 570-832-4686. Include your name, affiliated organization, and note if you would like to present information about your group at the workshop.
The Foundation recognizes Pike County Light & Power (PCL&P) "for their continued and generous support, and their 20th year of sponsorship of this event."
The Greater Pike Community Foundation (GPCF) was created to enable generous individuals, families and local businesses to maximize their charitable support through organized, targeted, long-term community philanthropy.
"The Foundation provides a permanent and personal way to give back to the region we love and have worked so hard to nurture and maintain," it says.
