VT PoC’s BIPOC Grant Systems Series

The Vermont Professionals of Color Network (VT PoC) will be offering more BIPOC Non-Profit Leaders Series workshops in the future!
VT PoC launched our Nonprofit Leaders Series in 2022 with our Grant Systems Workshop Series. The six-months long series brought BIPOC non-profit leaders together from across the state to better understand the nonprofit funding landscape, the grant writing and management process, and gave the group an opportunity to connect.

Participants of the series received:

  • 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 created space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) led nonprofits in the state of Vermont.
