Summer, Summer, Summertime – updates!
It has been wonderful catching up with so many of you, making new contacts and beginning new partnerships, and debriefing the season. A few bits of information are below! Please take a look. And, a huge thanks to our year-around sites that are still doing the hard work of tax preparation. This has been a busy summer for our “off-season” sites!
Save the Date!
We have scheduled the Regional Convening for Tuesday, October 22nd at Preservation Park in Oakland. Please save the date and look out for our official invite soon. We are looking for presenters as well as ideas for breakout sessions. Let us know if you have an idea you’d like to present! We hope to present you with a full calendar of optional webinars and other important meetings at the end of September.
Grant Application Coming Soon
Be on the lookout for our updated (and shorter!) grant application coming in early September. UWBA will continue to seek funding for expanding free tax prep services and education and outreach and encourage you to apply. We hope to receive funds from the California Department of Community Services and Development, along with continued individual, government, and foundation support. Please reach out with questions or ideas in advance!
Taxpayer Opportunity Network
Prosperity Now is hosting a great series of webinars this summer. Visit their website to learn more.
As Site Coordinators, we encourage you all to attend ProsperityNow’s VITACon in Denver from Sept. 10-11. You can register here and your tax site can apply for a $1000 scholarship to cover your travel expenses!
We are still looking for the next great Program Specialist here at United Way. Please circulate our careers page to your networks.
We appreciate you!
