On Thursday, November the 17th, Community Shared Services facilitated a Funders Forum co–hosted by Black Creek Community Collaborative and supported by The City of Toronto in response to Toronto Strong Neighborhoods Strategy to connect non-profit Executive Directors with funders from all sectors. The event fostered some juicy discussions on what funders are looking for and how we can meet their needs.
Community Shared Services was invited to the OCASI conference in Toronto to talk about shared services and how it can benefit Executive Directors who are spending precious time doing back office administrative work instead of focusing on program delivery.
On Friday, April 7th, 2017, Community Shared Services was pleased to facilitate Corporate Sponsorship 101: Capacity Building in Fund Development with a very informative presentation from Mr. Scott Lawson and Mr. Alan Convery. We had a large turnout with many questions from our participants.
Due to high demand, our presenters were kind enough to share their slide decks with us; you can view them here:
- Corporate Strategies – Alan Convery, Community Relations Manager, TD Bank
- Grant & Proposal Writing – Scott Lawson, Non-profit senior manager, grant/proposal writer
