Revelstoke has numerous Non-Profit organizations. Some have flourished into well oiled machines; Revelstoke Arts Council, Revelstoke Local Food Initiative and Community Connections are a few that run like a spinning top.
With Revelstoke being eligible to numerous grant opportunities and financial support from the Columbia Basin Trust, Revelstoke continuously has new and dynamic programs implemented. Many cities and towns that are just outside of the Basin are always knocking on their door asking to be let in, but where the draw lines are, they are not eligible to what we have on a regular basis.
Groups such as our local Women’s Shelter and School District 19 have received social grants which allow for our schools to remain top of the line and a safe haven for women in this community who need refuge and a safe environment. The CBT is part in parcel, a reason why these groups have added success to their existing efforts.
The CBT recently announced that 1-million dollars would be give out to local non-profits to upgrade any outdated office hardware to help ensure their success in the technological savvy world of business.
We are in a zone for opportunity and growth.
If any Non-Profits are considering starting a business, there will be a free social enterprise workshop in the new year.
It will focus on operating a business within a traditional Non-Profit arena. The design of the workshop is to allow exploration of how to get started, readiness of the organization and how to measure success.
This workshop will be Tuesday, January 9th 2018 from 6:00pm- 9:00pm at the Revelstoke Business Information Centre.
Registration is required for this workshop. To register, visit http://bbaprogram.ca/ or call 1.855.510.2227 Ext. 5.
