"Make your Mark" Nonprofit Voter Engagement Trainings

Nonprofit VOTE
Jul 17, 2014 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM | Center for Families & Children | Community
Few building blocks are more integral to the strength of our democracy than educating, motivating and mobilizing voters. As nonprofits, we have the unique opportunity to offer these activities, all of which help us advance our missions and build awareness for the work we do and the people we serve. A strong democracy helps build a stronger community, so getting involved in nonprofit, nonpartisan civic engagement is a win-win proposition!

Mobilize and motivate your clients, staff, board and volunteers to VOTE!
Hear how nonprofits can be active in voter engagement and guidelines for 501(c)(3) organizations on being nonpartisan.
Learn ways to educate and motivate your constituents and communities to vote and the latest voting rules in Ohio.
Build stronger communities and neighborhoods through nonpartisan voter engagement.

Training will cover the following:

Who is OhioVOTES?
Voting & Voter Registration Basics
Why Should Nonprofits Be Engaged?
Local Plans: How to Develop an Agency Based Voter Engagement Plan
National Voting Registration Day (Enroll & Generate Ideas for Events/Activities)
We will also be joined by representatives from the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections

We hope you'll join us for one of this training in July that will help you learn more about how you can increase voter engagement. We'll give you month by month plans and tips on how to make your voter engagement efforts successful and effective.

What's Going on with the Creative Workforce Fellowship?

The City Club of Cleveland
Jul 24, 2014 3 p.m. | The City Club of Cleveland | Community, Money
This spring, new applications to the Creative Workforce Fellowship program - a local grant program that directly supports individual artists - were put on hold. Administered by the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAC) and funded by Cuyahoga Arts & Culture (CAC), the Creative Workforce Fellowship has been awarded to 20 local artists ($20,000 each) every year since 2009. CPAC and CAC agreed to delay any new applications to the program to allow both organizations to learn from the findings of a recently completed independent evaluation on the program.
