Seton Academy in South Holland is offering a grant writing class for the fourth year in a row.
The program is offered to students of all levels and is conducted outside of the regular school day.
This year, 36 students have subscribed to the class. Students are learning about the effect that nonprofit organizations have on society, how they are funded, and how to research foundations and corporate giving programs. Students also are learning how to construct a grant proposal for submission.
“This course is a very unique program at the high school level,” Seton Academy officials said in a news release. “Knowledge and skills gained in this area can benefit not only opportunities for Seton Academy, but also their churches and other organizations with which they participate.”
