Nine area not-for-profit organizations received a total of $22,750 from the Campbell River Community Foundation on Wednesday. The grants were handed out at the Museum at Campbell River and it was a milestone event.
The Whaletown Community Club in conjunction with the Southern Cortes Community Association applied for a Board Development Grant.
Their grant will enable us to host a workshop on the island that will provide a basic understanding of the Society Act, common problems with bylaws, provide advice on governance issues and review of regulatory compliance.
This weekend workshop will be open to everyone on the island: people that sit on boards at this moment as well as people that might be interested to become a board member in the future.
We received $1,500 for the Board Development workshop. We will collaborate with Literacy Now, that has a Board Development/Facilitation/Non Violent Communication/Process & Decision Making Month planned within the Skill Centre for (tentatively) September.
For more information regarding this grant please contact Ester Strijbos. A big thank you to Sandra Wood for going over the application before it was sent in.
