Upcoming Child Nutrition Webinar

LIVE Webinar

Now Childhood Nutrition Programs Get a Leg Up – Funding Abounds!

Thursday, April 16, 2015; By: Frank Klimko


Connect With the Federal/Private Funding Streams That Support Childhood Nutrition Initiatives

The severity of the childhood nutrition epidemic was initially brought to light by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative, but numerous private and federal funders have joined the effort to end the problem within a generation. Nearly all federal agencies have joined the cause, and many private entities are readjusting or enhancing their priorities to focus more on childhood nutrition and obesity prevention. Funds are available for healthy foods, nutrition education, physical education, sports programs and after-school and extra-curricular activities.

This audio conference with funding expert Frank Klimko will help nonprofits position themselves for successful fundraising for childhood nutrition programs. It will provide you with the knowledge to search for funding at the right place; the research and boards that are setting the funding agenda; easy to adapt best practices; and what types of partnerships are required. Frank will shed light on the new federal budget and how it set aside significant money for this national effort.

Because grant writing is a tough job, a portion of the webinar will be reserved for a special “Shake the Money Tree” section. Frank will show how to prepare, format and burnish a grants applications to get the funding that you need to make your programs grow. You will be given with the tools to help them be successful, stand out from the crowd, and connect with the federal/private funding streams.
