conference bursaries + scholarships

The LGBT Giving Network is pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of bursaries for fundraisers and volunteers across Canada who would benefit from the opportunity to attend this year’s Philanthropy Conference. We have bursaries available to a maximum of $500 per person, to foster the professional development of individuals who work or volunteer for organizations raising $500,000 or less per year (excluding government/United Way funding) and to encourage a pan-Canadian perspective on fundraising issues facing the LGBT and HIV/AIDS community. Some bursaries will include airfare and hotel accommodations; others will cover off the cost of conference registration.

The LGBT Giving Network is pleased to enable individuals to attend the 2014 Philanthropy Conference who might otherwise be prevented from attending due to financial constraints. You are eligible to be considered for a bursary up to $500 if you:
