The Foundation offers a funding program that provides training grants as part of its work to enhance the ability of charities to better serve Canadians. We view the building of organizational capacity through staff development as crucial to improving effectiveness in programs, services and administration. We also see it as essential to fostering collaborative attitudes within and across organizations.
Through our experience, we have seen that charities across the sector sometimes have similar training needs and have limited time and few resources to provide quality training opportunities for staff and key volunteers. Through this funding program the Foundation will consider applications that brings together two or more agencies to undertake a joint training initiative that would address a specific training need. The Foundation will not consider applications to support conferences or workshops that are open for registration.
The proposed training initiative must include a knowledge or skill component that has the potential to increase the capacity of individual staff members or key volunteers to contribute to meeting the organization’s mission.
