Thanks to your workshop, encouragement and help, I was able to complete a grant request to the CA Arts Council for $5000 to redesign CCMA’s website. Regardless of whether it is successful, I learned a lot going through the grant application process. I discovered it is less fearsome than I anticipated, and very friendly toward amateur grant writers like me. It was your urging that made me listen to the CAC webinar on this year’s grant opportunities. It was your coaching at the workshop that spurred me to apply. It was your answer to my e-mail that made me try again after the first failure.`
If CCMA is successful, it will be fully due to your personal support and tips for success.

On behalf of the Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council, I would like to highly compliment the organizers from Arts Connection for putting together grants 'how-to' presentations at their offices at the Garcia Center in the city of San Bernardino, hosting grant application workshops locally in the Morongo Basin, and having in depth seminars in applying for grants at their annual conference. In addition the Arts Connection staff is always available to answer questions via email. For most of us, grant writing is very intimidating and complex. Without their help, many local arts organizations would not know where to start, let alone complete a successful grant application.
