Grant writing workshop being hosted in Little Fort

Grant writing workshop being hosted in Little Fort

Canada’s Community Foundations do three key things to build community vitality:

• They work with donors to build endowment funds that ensure vital futures for communities;

• They grant funds to the widest possible range of organizations and initiatives;

• And they bring people together from all parts of our communities to stimulate new ideas, build participation and strengthen community philanthropy.

The North Thompson Community Foundation continues to build community vitality within the valley, and recently announced they will be putting on a Grant/Proposal Writing Workshop for Non-Profits on March 10 at the Little Fort Hall.

This workshop will be a full day workshop, with lunch and snacks provided for a $25 per person registration fee.  The facilitator for the day is Barbara McMillan.

Ms. McMillan offers a certificated course on proposal writing at BCIT and has agreed to condense this into a one day course that is specifically designed to assist “Not For Profits”  to understand the dynamics of writing an engaging and “winning” proposal.

This is, therefore, a “crash course in grant writing”, and not for the faint of heart.  Indeed this interactive session will outline the key elements of proposal writing and provide strategies and tools to make it easier, faster and more fun.

All area groups and organizations are encouraged to have a member take part in this workshop to assist their organization in better understanding the process of applying for grant funding.
