Our Workshops

The Cameron Foundation hosts information workshops for organizations to learn about the Foundation, its mission, and grant submission procedures. Onsite workshops are offered at our headquarters at 228 S. Sycamore St. in Petersburg and are led by the Foundation’s program officers. Offsite workshops also are scheduled periodically, with the location varying from one session to another.

New: Online Application Orientation Classes

Starting December 5, 2014, The Cameron Foundation will transition from paper to online applications and reports for its grant programs. To facilitate this change, the Foundation is conducting an orientation on the new, online process. The class will introduce participants to the system step by step and will clarify how it affects the Letter of Intent (LOI) and Proposal process for the Foundation’s applicants. Organizations that intend to submit an LOI by the upcoming deadline (January 5, 2015) are encouraged to have a representative sign up to attend one of the four orientation sessions offered in December. Orientation session dates are:

  • Thursday, December 4, 10:00-11:30 a.m. or 1:00-2:30 p.m. – at The Cameron Foundation’s office, 228 S. Sycamore St., Petersburg
  • Thursday December 11, 10:00-11:30 a.m. or 1:00-2:30 p.m. – at The Cameron Foundation’s office, 228 S. Sycamore St., Petersburg
