        Upcoming Workshops

        Grant Writing Essentials
        Limited resources are the norm for non-profit organizations. With grants becoming more competitive and difficult to attain, many organizations have had even less to work with to meet increased needs in the community. KCR and our team of local fund development specialists can help you build your skills and master effective techniques in preparing and writing your next grant proposal during this six-module workshop!

        Overview of Volunteer Management
        Volunteers are vital to the success of many organizations. Heading into a post-pandemic season, it is integral for volunteer managers to ensure the effectiveness and sustainability of a successful volunteer program. This eight-week training workshop is specifically designed to guide and help new and existing volunteer managers achieve their organization’s mission, as well as the goals and interests of their volunteers. Content is based on Canadian research and best practices, as well as the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement. Re-charge your volunteer program today and effectively mobilize our community’s change makers!
