Collaborative Training Registration

Working together to make poverty #UNIGNORABLE

United Way Simcoe Muskoka has launched a new Community Impact investment framework with a refined focus on Poverty Reduction and Inclusion. Donor dollars will support cross-sector collaborative projects defined by local poverty related issues in each sub-region.

UWSM, in partnership with Ligaya Byrch & Associates, is hosting a training session that will prepare partners to: build a collaborative approach with cross-sector partners; determine roles and work strategically; navigate risk management; achieve shared outcomes over a multi-year project; begin to build an effective MOU; and much more.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Training is mandatory for organizations planning to apply for funding.

When: October 18, 2019, 9:00am – 4:00pm

Where: Rotary Place Orillia – 100 University Ave, Orillia L3V 6H1

  1. Plan to attend with your partners
