Attention Social Purpose Organizations!
The Investment Readiness Program is a $50M fund whose aim is to help social purpose organizations’ (charities, non-profits, social enterprises, for-profits with a social purpose and co-operatives) build their capacity to participate in Canada’s growing social finance market. The first round of applications to the program were accepted in Jan/Feb 2020 and the successful PEI applicants will be announced soon. The program will begin accepting a second round of applications in early Fall 2020.
To help Social Purpose Organizations (SPOs) in PEI learn more about social finance and be better prepared to submit an eligible application for Round 2, the Community Foundation of PEI (CFPEI) in partnership with the McConnell Foundation is pleased to announce the following opportunity:
Free on-line engagement sessions/workshops led by the McConnell Foundation, specific to the needs of PEI participants. The sessions/workshops will be delivered in mid-August. Interested participants are asked to complete and submit an intake form at https://innoweave.formstack.com/forms/social_finance_support to determine which session/workshop would best meet their needs and stage of investment readiness.
In order to deliver the workshops in advance of the Round 2 application period, intake forms must be submitted by July 30, 2020.
If you have any questions about the IRP or the on-line engagement sessions/workshops please contact Cathy McPhail, CFPEI IRP Coordinator at [email protected] .
Please share this information with your membership and/or other PEI Social Purpose Organizations!
