Grant Writing Workshop

March 2, 7:00 PM, Creative City Centre

Grant Writing Workshop, Wednesday, March 2, 2016
◾7 pm to 9:30 pm, 2nd Floor (no elevator)
◾$25 plus GST in advance or $35 plus GST at the door (very limited seating, advance registration recommended)

This 3 hour long workshop will cover the do’s and don’ts of good grant writing.  It will be facilitated by Marian Donnelly, who has been writing grant applications for over 30 years in a variety of municipal, provincial and federal funding programs. While the only guarantee in the world of grant writing is that “if you don’t apply, you won’t get anything”, there are definitely some things you can do to increase your chances of success. 

Marian has offered this workshop in a number of communities across Saskatchewan, but this is the first time it’s been offered at the Creative City Centre.  Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to improve your grant writing skills, especially before the April deadlines!  Advance registration is $25 plus $1.25 GST, plus a $1.25 service charge if purchased online, or $35 plus GST at the door.  We highly recommend advance registration, as seating is very limited.
