Community Foundation to Host Grant Application Workshop

Area non-profit organizations will have a chance to learn more about the Community Foundation’s grant application process at a workshop on Wednesday.

All interested parties are invited to attend the “Grant Application Workshop,” where Community Foundation executive director Mike Christie will guide applicants through the forms and process.

“During past grant cycles we have found the workshop very valuable,” said Christie. “It leads to higher quality grant applications and makes the process easier on both the applicants and grant committee members.”

Applicants are under no obligation to attend the workshop, as it is not a required part of the grant application process.

The workshop will be held on Wednesday, July 29 from 12 – 1:30 PM at the Volunteer and Community Information Centre located at 211 4th St. SE. Coffee will be provided and attendees are welcome to bring their lunch.

The Community Foundation announced earlier this month that it will resume its community grants process this fall. Applications are due by September 15, 2009 and are available online at or at the office (430-6th Ave. SE, Room 104). For more information, applicants are encouraged to call (403) 527-9038. Qualified donees or organizations must hold a charitable registration number from the Canada Revenue Agency.

The Community Foundation awards grants for charitable activities in the arts, education, social services, the environment, health, culture and recreation, or any project that will maintain or improve the quality of life in Southeastern Alberta.

For more information, please contact Mike Christie at (403) 527-9038.
