GrantNET Funding Conference

Thursday 14th September 2017 at NICVA’s Offices, Belfast. 

With funding becoming ever more competitive we all need to increase our sustainability through more effective fundraising especially if we want to continue making a real difference to the lives of those we serve. This is a free event for NICVA and RCN members to help you to get a key funding skill under your belt, i.e. – making successful grant applications.
