Support for Community Heritage Organizations

  • Consultation on potential funding sources, grant application review and municipal letters of support.
  • Board development training and workshops for board members.
  • Access to the Culture Services Resource Library that contains books on event planning, financial management, programming, board operations and many other topics relevant to not-for-profit groups.
  • Special event planning.
  • Marketing and sponsorship development.
  • Initiating collaborative efforts with other community partners.

To receive support in any of these areas, please contact the Heritage Community Development Coordinator at 403-309-6270 or email heritage@reddeer.ca.
