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

About Launch Pad Coaching Grants

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 22 community organizations tackle everything from fundraising and sponsorship to business planning and marketing.

“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
