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.

You’ll 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 Developing and Funding your Community Project Workshop will be in Golden on Thurs. Jan. 24 at the Golden Seniors Centre from 7 to 9 p.m.
