Finding Resources to Enhance Your Leadership

Posted by: in Central East, Uncategorized

It’s no secret, non-profit/voluntary organizations often depend on funding and resources to establish and sustain initiatives and programs that support Albertans in nearly every capacity is some way, shape or form. Non-profit/voluntary organizations are also amazingly innovative at finding ways to work miracles on a shoestring and as a result, I have funds wasted. But of course, they can always use and/or need more. This is why I have decided to blog about this very important topic.

We know being an effective leader isn’t simply defined by the number of resources a person has to do their job but it helps. Let’s face it; leaders need resources, whether that be time, money or both. So let KnowledgeConnector help you out.

Firstly, you can attend the Funders Forum, offered right here in the Central East region through the Information and Volunteer Centre for Strathcona County; a KnowledgeConnector learning provider. The workshop is offered on May 15 from 5:00 to 9:00PM. At the workshop, you will learn first-hand about specific funding grants and initiatives. You will also get immediate answers to your questions and, funders will be speaking to small groups on a rotating basis. For more information visit contact Susan Mihalievitch at 780.464.4242 or click here.

Aside from attaining grants, fundraising can also be very useful in expanding your skills as a leader. The Information and Volunteer Centre for Strathcona County is also offering a workshop called Fundraising 101: The Fundamentals. At this workshop, you learn how to ensure your organization is ready to raise funds, select the best fit in potential funders, use the right method(s) for raising those funds and learn to be aware of all the regulations. You will also become more savvy on volunteers and the “philanthropic process”. This workshop has a strong focus on the essential steps to building a fund development program that will allow your organization to be a success.

What are you waiting for? Register for one of those above and attain the resources you need to enhance your leadership.
