"Fundraising is a lot like crime scene investigation, except, of course, for the corpses lying around.” – Brian Smith, Custom Development Solutions.
Using the analogy of the steps taken during a 'Crime Scene Investigation' (CSI), this workshop will introduce attendees to the basics of grant writing, using a combination of established research techniques & effective application procedures, thus increasing one's chance at successfully receiving funding.
Attendees will then have the opportunity to apply their new-found knowledge and work together on aligning a list of mock projects with the most suitable funder.
Top Three Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this presentation, attendees will be able to provide the required basic elements for a grant application, develop a simple draft proposal, and identify suitable funders.
Trainer: Melanie Fulop
Mélanie Fulop is a Carleton University Alumna (Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies) whose first career was in Marketing at The Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation (now The Canadian Museum of History). Active volunteering at various fundraising events led her to the non-profit sector, working with organizations such as the Co-operative Development Foundation, The Rick Hansen Foundation, The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario, and World Vision.
Prior to joining The Kidney Foundation of Canada as Researcher/Writer, Mélanie worked at the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa as a Philanthropy Officer. In both instances, she drew on her knowledge of successful grant writing techniques. She has also shared her skills with other non-profits like the Dovercourt Recreation Centre and the Anxiety Disorder Association of Ontario, and has presented at both local and international Fundraising conferences.
Mélanie’s board level participation with the Ottawa Chapter of AFP has raised her appreciation for the fundraising industry, while her past involvement with the United Way of Ottawa’s Speakers Bureau gave her an opportunity to share her heartfelt reasons for switching to a career in the non-profit sector; the latter experience recently earned her a Community Builder Award.
Mélanie is a member of The Association of Professional Researchers for Advancement (APRA) Canada and lives in Perth, Ontario, Canada with her husband.
