Grantsmanship

May 29th, 2017

Once upon a time there were practical skills such as how to change a carburator or pluck a chicken. We have advanced to learning how to Skype and, yes, how to apply for grants. Deborah Griffiths. as the Executive Director of the Courtenay and District Museum, knows  her was around an application. Having been involved in museum research and curatorial work in the Okanagan and on Vancouver Island for over thirty years, she has not only written a novel under a pseudonym and c0-authored Watershed Moments: A Pictorial History of Courtenay and District (Harbour 2015), she has e-published a guidebook, The Grant Seekers Helper: The Little Book on Grants for Big Community Dreams (Amazon 2013), that has evolved into The Grant Writing and Funding Coach: Target and Acquire the Funds You Need (Self Counsel Press $16.95). Once upon that same old time, people lived by the sword and died by the sword. Now some organizations live precariously from grant to grant. Live by the BC Lottery Fund, die by the BC Lotttery Fund. 978-1-77040-288-1 $16.95
