Launch Pad Grant

Unlocking the Potential of Places that Matter

“The Launch Pad Coaching Grant was a great experience for our board members involved in communications at the Grand Theatre in Indian Head. The National Trust team reviewed our communications products and gave us the advice and encouragement to become effective story tellers about our building, our volunteers and our community.”
– Bruce Neil, Grand Theatre

Launch Pad Grant

Meet our 2018 Spring grant recipients!

We know that small community organizations and volunteers don’t always have the means to pay for external expertise.

Through the generous support of donors, the National Trust’s Launch Pad Coaching Grants give community organizations up to 14 hours of direct coaching time with a team of seasoned professionals. Together, we find solutions to unlock the potential of their historic places.
Since launching two years ago, we have helped ten community organizations tackle everything from fundraising and sponsorship to business planning and marketing.

“We were very excited to have been selected as a participant for this initiative and the benefits to our organization will be felt for years to come. The team at the National Trust put together a concise plan to help us attain our objectives and followed us every step of the way. This was a truly enriching experience for our organisation; the support and coaching by the National Trust team was exemplary.”
– Emmanuel Comtois, Treasurer of the North Highlands Community Museum and Culture Centre

Launch Pad Coaching Grant Alumni

“We’re a volunteer organization. We don’t have the expertise or experience that the National Trust brings to the table. Launch Pad gave us our path forward. We’re underway and it just wouldn’t have happened without Launch Pad.”
-Aggie-Rose Reddin, Vice Chair of the Glenaladale Heritage Trust
