As a local nonprofit, you should know that the Washington Region Association of Grantmakers (WRAG) recently revised and streamlined its Common Grant Application (CGA), Common Letter of Inquiry, and Common Grant Report. You may preview the new forms on the WRAG website. The revised forms are intended to better meet the needs of funders, while lessening the burden on nonprofit organizations and allowing them to better describe their work.
To help DC-area nonprofits understand the new forms, two orientation sessions have been scheduled for June 11 and June 20 at the Foundation Center's Washington DC office. Teaching the sessions will be Miyesha Chappell of the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation, who helped develop the revised CGA.
These will fill up very quickly (in fact there are only a few seats left for the June 11th session), so be sure to register soon if you'd like to attend. Click the links below to register:
