Morgridge Center update by Katie Coon

This week's Morgridge Center opportunities include grant writing for the University Wellness Foundation and advising options in the Morgridge Center.

Grant Writing Opportunity for the University Wellness Foundation

As a new non-profit organization, working with youth in the Madison community, we need help raising funds and acquiring resources for our much needed after school programs. These programs include mentoring and tutoring designed at your local middle schools.

We are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic individual to write grants for a number of different programs. These grants are needed for our organization to grow and continue or valued service. We are looking for someone with grant writing experience. This individual would work with our grant and resource team to write these grants.

For more information contact Kingsley Andersen, Executive Director at (608) 228-3808 or via e-mail.
