Funding Community Impact Series: Session 3

What this session has to offer:

What does innovation look like in the funding environment? What does it look like when people push the boundaries of how funding happens? Innovators in the sector who are approaching funding differently will share stories of novel approaches they have tried or observed.

Series Description:

The Association of Fundraising Professionals, Nova Scotia Chapter and Impact Organizations of Nova Scotia (IONS) have a common interest in supporting organizations across the region in accessing the resources they need to have the impact they want. We are coming together to offer a 3-part webinar series, Funding Community Impact to explore opportunities and barriers faced by organizations.

In this three part series, we will hear from experts, practitioners, and funders to equip community leaders with a fuller understanding of how funding works, what gets in the way, and novel approaches from the field. Join us for some tangible tips, new ideas, and a chance to ask some of your burning funding-related questions.
