The Board of Directors of the Central California Women’s Conference (CCWC) is seeking local community benefit organizations serving women and children to apply for a share of $100,000 in available grant money. The recipients will be recognized at CCWC’s Community Celebration Grant Reception on Wednesday, April 11.
According to a release from the organization, all grant requests must be submitted online. The criteria for grant submissions and application can be found at http://www.ccwc-fresno.org/grantapp/. All grant applications must be submitted by noon on Monday, Feb. 12. Awards will be made only to Central Valley non-profits serving women and children who have served the community for at least three years.
When this year’s grant awards are included, CCWC will have donated more than $1,000,000 to Valley non-profits serving women and children. Funding has benefited recipients by providing an array of services ranging from mammograms to food, shelter, clothing, education, and more.
Now in its 31st year, more than 90,400 women have attended the Central California Women’s Conference. This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018 at the Fresno Convention and Entertainment Center.
FresYes.com’s Natali Carrera wrote about last year’s event, and you can read that article here.
I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.
Fresno? I say FresYES
