The PricewaterhouseCoopers Canada Foundation has launched an eight-week call for submissions for its Leadership Grants Program. The program provides up to $200,000 in grants to leaders at small- or medium-sized registered charitable organizations in Canada looking to fund professional development opportunities. Submissions will be accepted until October 28, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. Grants are available in two categories:
Individual Leadership Grants (value $2,500). To be used by individual staff members or volunteers for professional development opportunities of their own design.
Team Leadership Grants (value $5,000). To be used by teams of two or more staff members and/or volunteers (including the applicant) for professional development opportunities of their own design.
The program's design gives charities the flexibility to take advantage of a development opportunity that best meets their needs. Examples could include anything from formal courses, conferences or training programs to informal learning experiences of the applicant’s own design that helps advance the applicant's professional development and the organization’s goals.
