News Release
Issued: April 15, 2014

OLYMPIA...The Secretary of State's Corporations and Charities Division is sponsoring a workshop on fundraising for charities and nonprofits in Ocean Shores on Monday, April 21.

The event will be held at the Ocean Shores Convention Center, 120 W Chance A La Mer Ave, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with lunch provided.

"Rather than being a 'how-to' for fundraising events, this workshop will explore deeper into the responsibilities and ethics of fundraising for charitable and nonprofit organizations," said Teresa Glidden, education coordinator for the Corporations and Charities Division. "It's not going to teach organizations how to hold a raffle, but it will help charities and nonprofits approach their fundraising efforts the right way."

The featured speaker at the workshop is Dr. Stuart Grover, chair emeritus of Collins Group and chair of the Secretary of State's Charity Advisory Council, who will share more than 30 years of experience as a fundraising consultant.

There is a $10 per-person lunch charge to help defray the costs of the facility and catering. Registrants can pay online when they register by credit or debit card. Registration is limited and available online at www.sos.wa.gov/charities/training.

For more information about the event, contact Glidden at (360) 725-0373 or teresa.glidden@sos.wa.gov.
