What we're about

This is a free group for grant writers, grant managers, nonprofits, consultants, volunteers, and anyone with an interest in discussing "hot grant topics" and networking with peers. The Grants Cafe is an in-person monthly meetup over lunch (on your own) at CoLab18 in Nova Place on the North Side of Pittsburgh PA. Members learn from invited speakers including funders and discuss all aspects of the grants field such as career/business opportunities, grant proposal development, building proposal budgets, current trends in philanthropy, grants management, development planning, grant dilemmas, and more. You can expect to meet new people at all experience levels who share a passion for grants to support nonprofit causes and our communities. Everyone is welcome to contribute questions, discussion points, and suggest topics and speakers between meetups. The Grants Cafe has grown to 400+ people and we are able to keep the meetings free for all to attend through business sponsorships that pay the meetup.com fees.
