May 20, 2015 -- Fresno State and Fresno County Libraries to Host Grant Workshops
Fresno State’s Henry Madden Library and the Fresno County Public Library will team up in May to host four sessions on grants and foundations.

“Many small nonprofits in the Central Valley are helping those hit hard by this difficult economy, but they don’t have the resources to hire a professional grant writer,” said Lisa Lindsay of Fresno County Public Library. “With free library resources and a partnership with the Foundation Center-San Francisco, we’re excited to offer these programs that will enable them to gain the critical skills needed to continue their good work.

The workshops will be led by Sarah Jo Neubauer, training coordinator at the Foundation Center-San Francisco. The events are free and open to the public, but seats are limited and early registration is encouraged.

On Monday, May 20 the libraries will host two workshops at the Madden Library at Fresno State: “Grantseeking Basics” from 1-2p.m. and “Introduction to Finding Funders” from 2:30-3:30 p.m.

On Tuesday, May 21, the Fresno County Woodward Park Regional Library (944 East Perrin Ave.) will hold “Proposal Writing Basics” from 1-2:30 p.m. and “Meet the Grantmakers: Funding Opportunities for Fresno/Central Valley Nonprofits” from 3-4:30 p.m.

For more information, contact Lindsay at 559-600-6267 or, or Allison Cowgill from the Madden Library at 559-278-1022 or

May 23, 2015 -- Clovis Memorial Run
This is a race to honor the seniors and veterans in our community. The proceeds from the event go toward improving programs offered at the Clovis Senior Activity Center.

All age groups and fitness levels are welcome and we have an event for everyone! You can participate in the timed 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk or if that’s a bit far for you then join the non-competitive 2-mile walk. Kids can participate in a ½ mile kid’s run and senior citizens can participate in the ½ mile Senior Walk and Roll. Seniors are welcome to walk the ½ mile, “roll” in a wheelchair, or be pushed in a wheelchair (their attendant can walk for free). Neither the kid's run, the 2-mile walk, or the Senior Walk & Roll are timed, they are just for good family fun for all ages.
