More Funding for Community-based Seniors Programs
A key aspect of board governance is identifying and managing risk. If you are a director with a small nonprofit organization whose staff might not have the experience to manage risk, you may find your role is a little more ‘hands-on’ in this area. On May 31 from 12 to 1 p.m. join risk management and insurance industry expert Melanie Needham to learn about the questions to ask, and the insurance options to cover you. Find details and registration information HERE.
Young Millionaires Program (YMP)
Summer is on its way and that means the Young Millionaires Program will soon be underway. YMP is an outstanding opportunity for youth aged 9 to 16 to try their hand at running a business and reaping the financial rewards. The program provides training, mentoring, and ongoing support to help nurture PEI’s future business leaders. Contact your local Rural Action Centre for information about deadlines and the application process.
Community Museums & Cultural Venues – Funding up to $2500
Gathering limits and fewer visitors to PEI owing to COVID-19 have taken a toll on community museums and cultural venues. In response, the provincial government has announced a new funding program to help keep the doors open. Deadline to apply is September 30, 2021. Find details and apply HERE.
