Funding information and application workshops

image003

The United Way and the Canadian Red Cross are working together to make the process of applying for funding for local organizations a little easier. There are a number of information sessions and workshops coming up at The Redpoll Centre on January 19th and February 7th.

“Working with our partners at the Canadian Red Cross we want to give organizations, large and small, information about our respective funding programs and go through the application process,” said John Evans, Co-Chair of the Community Partnerships Table. “Recent feedback from the community indicates that, in some cases, the application process was proving to be daunting for some. We want to help navigate them through the process.”

General informations co-presented by the Canadian Red Cross and United Way will be held on January 17 from 9 am to 10 am and February 7 from 6 pm to 7 pm at The Redpoll Centre in Shell Place.

Additionally, two application support workshops are being planned for January 19th, the first (10:30 am – 12:30 pm) for organizations that are interested in applying for the Red Cross’ Community Organizations Partnerships Program and the second (1:00 pm – 3:00 pm) for those interested in the United Way’s Fire Recovery Funding Program.

“We know these are challenging times for community benefit organizations,” said Evans. “The wildfire and evacuation had an impact on hundreds of groups, from the larger well-established charities to the very small non-profits that are run completely by volunteers. We want to do what we can to help. These sessions are the first steps in an effort to make sure that the funding that is available gets to the agencies and organizations that need it.”
