Event description

Description

Applying for a Grow Grant? Want to know more about the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s (OTF) programs? Join our free workshop on our popular Grow Investment Stream.

This full-day workshop, led by experienced OTF staff, will walk you through a Grow grant application. As a bonus we'll also be offering a session on OTF’s Inspired People Action Area Area following the Grow session, designed especially for initiatives that support arts, culture and heritage. This bonus session will provide:

  • An overview of “evidence of effectiveness” vs “evidence of need”
  • An overview of the range of evidence that demonstrates the effectiveness of your initiative’s approach
  • Examples of organizations that have successfully used evidence to support their applications
  • Tips for generating your own evidence

The Grow workshop will include:

  • Interactive presentations and quizzes
  • Sample worksheets

At the end of the workshop, you will:

  • Gain a better understanding of OTF Investment Strategy
  • Learn to identify the key components of a competitive Grow project
  • Understand the Grow application process

Join us!
