COMING EVENTS FEBRUARY 2019

• APPLYING FOR GRANTS WORKSHOP Thursday 7 February 2019, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, Russell Island Recreation Hall - Applying for grants can be a competitive process due to the limited pool of funds available and the number of organisations seeking support. Each grant also has its own funding criteria and requirements that need to be carefully considered to ensure your organisation’s project is suitable. Improving your skills in order to prepare applications for grants can mean the difference between getting a grant or missing out. Participants in this workshop will gain practical, first-hand knowledge on how to write grant applications through Redland City Council's Community Grants Program and where to source funding outside of Council.
