VT PoC BIPOC Grant Systems Workshop Series

The Vermont Professionals of Color Network (VT PoC) is excited to launch a new Grant Systems Series!

Participants in this series can expect:

  • A curated space for BIPOC leaders to learn about the traditional grant/funding process;
  • Opportunities to dismantle the traditional funding culture
  • Dedicated time to build community between the BIPOC participants

Our Audience

This series is open to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) led nonprofits in the state of Vermont.
