Grant writing workshops coming soon to area

Take the intimidation out of writing grant applications by spending a couple of hours with Columbia Basin Trust (CBT). This winter, CBT’s community liaisons are hosting Developing and Funding Your Community Project Workshops in eight locations in the region.

“These workshops are ideal for people who would like to learn more about developing a project idea into a funding proposal,” said Gary Ockenden, CBT Director, Community Initiatives. “Not only will you come to understand the elements of developing your idea, and tips and tools for preparing an application, you’ll also learn about building relationships and securing partnerships in order to increase your chances of success.”

Participants will cover topics like how to focus your project idea, develop a budget and write clearly. You’ll also learn how to identify appropriate funders, and receive an overview of CBT’s own granting programs.

The workshops will be in Kimberley on January 31 at the SPARK Lees Youth Centre from 7 to 9 p.m. and in Invermere at the Columbia Valley Chamber Lion’s Hall from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Email an RSVP to khamilton@cbt.org for either of those workshops.

If you’d like a workshop scheduled in your community, phone 1.800.505.8998 or email cbt@cbt.org. For more information, visit www.cbt.org/grantwriting.
