BCPL Hosts Grant Writing Workshops for Organizations

Bruce County Public Library (BCPL) is excited to announce their upcoming Grant Writing Workshops for Organizations, taking place Wednesday, June 5, at their Port Elgin and Wiarton Branches. These workshops are offered as part of Bruce County’s Cultural Action Plan and are intended to help non-profit organizations overcome the challenges they may encounter when accessing grants and funding. 

Renowned author, grant writer and educator Lindsay Zier-Vogel will be facilitating the workshops. With over two decades of experience and a track record of raising over $4 million for clients in 2023 alone, Lindsay is one of Canada’s most esteemed grant writers. 

These workshops, spanning two hours each, will guide participants through every aspect of the grant writing process and are best suited to the needs of small to medium-sized non-profit organizations. From identifying suitable grants, preparing materials, and crafting budgets, attendees will gain valuable insight and practical skills to enhance their grant applications. 

Another asset to help community organizations obtain grants is free access to Imagine Canada’s Grant Connect database, which is available on all Library Branch computers.  This database serves as a premier fundraising platform that offers individuals and organizations access to a wealth of funding opportunities. 

“We are thrilled to offer this invaluable resource to our community. Grant writing, especially for smaller organizations with limited resources, can be an overwhelming task. By providing access to expert guidance and tools like Grant Connect, we aim to support and empower local initiatives and foster growth in our communities,” said Library Director Brooke McLean. 

While these workshops are at no cost to attend, registration is required.  You can register by contacting the Branch you wish to attend directly.
