Grant Writing-Central Region

March 14, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm


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.  Participants should have either taken Intro to Grant Writing, or have some experience writing grants. Depending on experience level, participants will then explore writing municipal, provincial or federal grants.  To participate fully, it would be good to bring a laptop or tablet to be able to work online.

in case of inclement weather we will have March 25, 2019 as the storm date(same location, same times)

If schools in HRM are cancelled we will consider the workshop cancelled and rescheduled for Mach 25, 2019.
