Join us for UpCity's first ever drop-in, "open gym" workshop designed especially for grant writers and resource development professionals who are looking for a dynamic peer-to-peer learning experience.

To kick things off in the morning, you and other guests will have the chance to participate in a 30-minute, audience-led Q&A session with an Oregon Community Foundation program staff member.

Next, take advantage of a highly unique opportunity to talk through and receive feedback on one of your grant proposals while working in small groups. To support you in gaining diverse perspectives, each table will include colleagues and peers working in various sectors.

Then, it's your turn to "think like a program officer" by reviewing and providing feedback to others at your table. You'll also gain some fresh perspective as you hear feedback shared by your colleagues. Is someone wrestling with an especially tough proposal concept? UpCity partners and expert associates will be on hand to help too.

In the spirit of expanding our community's collective knowledge base, all guests will regather at the end to share "a-ha" moments and best practices garnered from their small group discussions.


Please join us at 8:30am for complimentary coffee, tea, breakfast treats and networking.

Registration required. Sliding scale options available.
