Sixty congregational leaders gathered to learn how to find and apply for grants from local, provincial and national foundations as well as government agencies.
This first workshop was held February 2, 2019 in Oakville, Ontario. It was organized by Jeff Pym, Director of Stewardship and Resource Development/Planned Giving and was sponsored by the Synod. A second event is already in the planning stages for another area.
Grant applications are another opportunity for collaboration with community partners. Turning necessity ("we can't do this on our own") into opportunity ("everyone benefits from collaboration")
Facilitator Jody Orr, a leader with extensive experience inside and outside the church as a consultant to the non-profit and public sectors.
