On the Cheap Part II

When I was writing the first "On the Cheap" post, I completely forgot about all the workshops that the Department of Neighborhoods is putting on this winter. They're all held at Seattle Central Community College (1701 Broadway) in Room 3211 -RSVP Wendy Watson (wendy dot watson at seattle dot gov) if you'd like to attend. The workshops are free and super useful, so reserve your spot before they're all gone

  • Shaking the Money Tree (Tonight!)
    The ABC’s of Grassroots Fund Raising
    Learn basic principles of how grassroots organizations can raise money from individuals.
    Wednesday, January 14 6:30–8:30 pm

  • People Power - Community Empowerment & Organizing
    Learn how communities can empower and organize themselves to take collective action!
    Wednesday, January 28 6:30–8:30 pm

  • Technology 101 A Building Community, One Website or Blog at a Time!

The Dept. of Neighborhoods is also hosting one more Large Projects Fund (aka Neighborhood Matching Fund) Technical Assistance Workshop on January 22nd from 6-7:30pm at Yesler Community Center (917 E Yesler Way). This is an essential class if you, like me, are going to be involved in the Neighborhood Matching Fund application process any time soon.
