Applying for a Grow Grant? Want to know more about the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s (OTF) programs? Join our free workshop on our popular Grow Investment Stream.
This full-day workshop, led by experienced OTF staff, will walk you through a Grow grant application. As a bonus we'll also be offering a session on OTF’s Inspired People Action Area following the Grow session, designed especially for initiatives that support arts, culture and heritage. This bonus session will provide:
- An overview of “evidence of effectiveness” vs “evidence of need”
- An overview of the range of evidence that demonstrates the effectiveness of your initiative’s approach
- Examples of organizations that have successfully used evidence to support their applications
- Tips for generating your own evidence
The Grow workshop will include:
- Interactive presentations and quizzes
- Sample worksheets
At the end of the workshop, you will:
