Volunteer Manitoba's Funders Forum is an excellent opportunity to find out about funding opportunities directly from the Funders! 

During the course of the morning you will have the opportunity to learn how to apply for funding, what types of projects are being funded, and get tips on how to create a successful funding proposal. The Funders Forum is also an excellent way for you to network with other non-profits and charities who will be attending. 

Presenting Funders will:

  • Provide an overview of their funding, grants, and sponsorships that are available
  • Address what types of programs/projects they fund
  • Discuss what the application process looks like
  • Address their requirements and stipulations, and highlight who is eligible
  • Provide other tidbits of advice with regards to applying for their funding
