SCHOLARSHIPS:

The Philanthropy Partners of the Cape and Islands recently made several scholarships available to members of the Cape Cod nonprofit community. Two recent recipients received scholarships to attend Geek Girl Camp held in March of 2011. Here are two of the thank you’s we received.

Hello, I was delighted to hear that I had won a spot in the Geek Girl Camp. As a business consultant helping small businesses on the Lower Cape, I am always looking to fill my knowledge bucket. Every time I add information into the bucket, I can be sure that someone will come along and need a drink from the bucket. I have already utilized the Photoshop information, understand the new IPOD and now I understand all that Excel has to offer. The best part for me was hearing the inspirational speakers first thing in the morning. We are all in this together and we all make a difference. Thank you for making this available to me.

Thanks for the opportunity to attend Geek Girl Boot Camp. It was an amazing and overwhelming experience and one I would repeat. I attended the ABCs of Blogs and social media to expand the possibilities for our church bookstore which I run (as a volunteer and non-retailer). I also picked up some camera tips for use with my new digital camera. But I must say much of the education for me came in the lines, at the lunch and before and after the class sessions meeting other women of all ages and hearing what they’re up to. I filled a notebook with possibilities and pull that out as I work on other projects in my life. Thank you again for such a gift. Sincerely,
Ellen
