2017 Ottawa Sport Council FALL Sport Summit – Grants Demystified – How to Create a Winning Application

Date(s) - 29/11/2017
6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Join us for Grants Demystified – How to Create a Winning Application on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at Ben Franklin Place.

Grants and Funding: Always Topical

Sport provides a range of benefits to participants, but it can be costly. Most not-for-profits depend on grants to deliver their services to the community, and they must secure this type of funding reliably and consistently. That means it’s crucial that those responsible for developing grant applications have a comprehensive understanding of how to set their projects apart from the pack.

73% of sport organizations across Canada have no paid staff, and rely on the good will of volunteers to provide their services to the community. These volunteers are usually responsible for preparing the grant applications which organizations depend upon to secure funding. So how can we help volunteers and other stakeholders create compelling, efficient, professional applications that will successfully secure a grant?

Facilitated by local thought leader Julien LeBlanc, our Fall Sport Summit will give attendees the chance to learn from grant providers about how to create a winning application. You’ll learn from informed decision makers about:

  • How to ensure your grant application stands out
  • Seven attributes of highly effective grants
  • The details that compel a grant provider to say yes

As always, one of the Sport Summit’s goals will be to create dialogue between attendees. You’ll get the chance to collaborate with peers, gaining greater insight into the topic by learning from the successes and failures of others that are working to enhance our local sport community.

Event Details:

This is a free event. We do ask participants to consider making a minimum $30 donation to the Ottawa Sport Council Foundation. The Ottawa Sport Council Foundation has been created to provide sporting organizations with grants, adopting key focus areas each year. Tax receipts will be provided.
