NOTE: You must be a member of Creative Manitoba to register for this workshop.
This seminar is for administrators who write grant applications and funding proposals in non-profit arts and/or cultural organizations.
Gerry Atwell will introduce various components that are common to most proposals, along with what to consider in your approach and how to decide what grants your organization can apply for. Learn how to create your own boilerplate and get tips on how juries make decisions.
Follow-up coaching with Gerry Atwell will be available for participants in Creative Manitoba’s Coach Access Program for Small Non-Profits. This seminar is a pre-requisite; it will assist you in finding out what you know already, and where you will want to focus your coaching sessions afterward.
Coaching sessions may be used to prepare for and/or work on current grant applications. The role of the coach is to advise and/or review, but not to write the grant application.
Coaching with Gerry Atwell will be available on January 30 and February 13 for Coach Access Program for Small Non-Profit participants.
