GRANTS: FINDING & WRITING

                        

Venue: Northumberland Community Curling Club (49 New Pugwash Road, Pugwash)

Date: Thursday, October 18, 2018      

Time: 9:30am-4:00pm  

WORKSHOP:

Introduction (morning): Finding grants and writing them can seem like a mysterious art form, but it’s really about figuring out what funders are looking to invest in and seeing if there is a match with your organizational goals. Participants in this workshop will:  look at common challenges in grant finding and writing, develop solutions to address them and learn how to be more successful and efficient using a Building the Case ‘Prep’ Checklist as a foundational resource. Advanced (afternoon): Grant writing at an advanced level is not for the faint of heart. In this workshop, participants will look to up their game by bringing in a grant they are working on for feedback.  They will also explore a variety of grants available at different levels, and see how as the level of funding goes up, the complexity goes up. Depending on experience level, participants will then explore writing municipal, provincial or federal grants. 

FACILITATOR:

Laurie Cook is Director of Innovation Custom Learning for the Community Sector. She is also an active volunteer and grant writer in her home community of Musquodoboit Harbour. Laurie has written grants for a variety of small and large projects including mental health projects, initiatives for youth and seniors, and starting a new cooperative transportation service.
