Beyond the Grant: Alternative Funding, Financing, Enterprise and Investment Options
Instructor: Rachel Forbes

What will I learn?

In recent years, many go-to sources of grant funding for non and for profit organizations alike have either dwindled or become increasingly difficult to compete for. In this Master Class, instructor Rachel Forbes will teach you how to find unconventional sources for grants, and look at the funding landscape beyond the grant. You will learn how to research other sources of funding and financing, and how to think creatively about how your or your organization's projects could be funded. In the latter part of the day, participants will be divided according to their interest and cover basics related to finding investors, flexible financing and setting up a social enterprise or C3 (Community Contribution Company).

Who is it for?

This class is for people involved in charities, non-profits, social enterprises, C3s and plain ol' businesses seeking unconventional grants, and funding outside of the typical granting environment.

Who is Rachel?

Rachel has over 15 years of experience working with different types of organizations. She has served directly as a board member, employee and consultant for over three dozen charities, non-profits and corporations, and as legal counsel for dozens more. Rachel is trained as a lawyer and has practiced in the fields of environmental, social justice, Aboriginal and local government law. She is now founder and principal of the growing firm Sharp Six, a capacity development firm based in Vancouver. Rachel launched Sharp Six so that she could share her passion for detail, organization, strategic thinking and planning with others.
