Check out the Grant Writing Tips from the ‘Beyond the Application” Lunch and Learn workshop. Another great resource is this Grant Writing 101 illustration taken from Shelley Thoen-Chaykoski’s presentation at a previous Grant Writing Workshop. We hope these can provide assistance when applying for grants.
What are Grant Writing Workshops?
The Grant Writing Workshop (GWW) & the Indigenous Community Sport Development Grant Program – Grant Writing Workshop (ICSDGP – GWW) targets member Sport, Culture and Recreation service providers. The intent of the program is to facilitate the development of beneficial sport, culture and recreation program or project plans. The participant learns how to communicate these beneficial plans to the funder in the grant application process. The GWW can be done in both a 1 day and 2 day format. The ICSDGP – GWW is a 1 day format.
Both the Grant Writing Workshop and the Indigenous Community Sport Development Grant Program Grant Writing workshops are offered in the winter and spring by request. Member communities are asked to fill out the Expression of Interest to Host application. The district will try to accommodate each request within the time frames of the Expression of Interest to Host Application.
