DSW Grant Writing Success

September 9, 2019
Debbie Gonzalez, DSW '19, receives grant funding

In her DSW grant writing class, Debbie Gonzalez partnered with the Mattole Valley Resource Center (MVRC), a nonprofit community support organization serving the Mattole Valley in Humboldt County, CA, where Debbie lives. The original grant she wrote was for $100,000 from two different foundations. The first grant was funded for $28,000, the second was funded for $75,000 for a total of $103,000! This grant funding will allow the MVRC to do the necessary construction to get their permanent office up and running, benefiting the entire Petrolia community.

Congratulations Debbie - we're thrilled to see the tangible outcomes of all your hard work!
