Communications and Grants

This week on #Grantchat Ephraim Gopin is leading us in a discussion on communications and grants.

Ephraim is currently the Director of Communications for Support the Girls, a national organization that collects and distributes bras and feminine hygiene products to girls and women experiencing homelessness. Ephraim has many years of experience in the nonprofit world. He has served nonprofits as a CEO, grant writer, fundraiser, alumni director, event planner, PR/comms/marketing director and of course: fireman. Ephraim loves 80s pop rock and culture, is a huge fan of Boston sports teams, has seen the movie Airplane over 100 times but that’s not important right now.
