Free grant writing workshops coming


The Cranbrook and District Community Foundation, in conjunction with the Kimberley and District Community Foundation, will be hosting a free Grant Writing workshop with Direct Access to Gaming and the Columbia Basin Trust.

This is a great opportunity for sport organizations, charities and other non-profit organizations to gain funds through grants.  If you need to brush up on your grant writing skills or you have never written a grant, tips and tools will be given at this workshop.   With changes in Direct Access to Gaming eligibility you will be one of the first in BC to gain valuable knowledge from key speaker Ursula Cowland, who holds a position with the Gaming Policy and Enforcement branch.

The Columbia Basin Trust will be presenting grant writing advice on what they are looking for from their applicants, and how to apply for their grants.  With their deadline for grants fast approaching this is a great time for your questions to be answered and get tips on achieving money from this organization.

Both the Cranbrook and Kimberley Community Foundations will be available to let you know about their grants which benefit the local community, If any of these grants are of interest to you then it is important to come to these free workshops on Saturday January 21 in Cranbrook from 9am to 12:30 p.m. at the COTR in room 205 and in Kimberley from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at COTR in room 8. You may attend either workshop, everyone is welcome, pre-registration is required call 250-426-2099.
