Identifying a Community Need
During week 1 you should be writing the need statement for your grant proposal. In this section, you will discuss the community issue the nonprofit intends to address with the program services the grant will fund. To better understand the community’s perspective on the issue, some nonprofits, ask community members about their views on the problem. Information can be solicited from those facing the problem, the target group; those people needing help trust and rely on such as community and religious leaders; and, professionals who provide services to those in need.
One method to gather community input is to hold a community forum. At such an event the three categories of people identified above are invited to share their opinions and experiences related to the community issue the nonprofit is interested in addressing through its services.
For this assignment, write an invitation letter in a business letter format to a community group or person to attend a community forum sponsored by the nonprofit you are pretending to work for as a grant writer. In the invitation, include information related to the functional details of the forum such as time, date, location, contact information for the sponsoring nonprofit as well as convey the importance of the invitee’s participation at the forum. Specify at least ten other community groups and/or people who will be invited to the forum due to their having relevant perspectives to share related to the issue.
Cite all sources and provide references in APA format on a separate page.
Submit your invitation letter in a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document.
