On January 18, 2018, Sunshine Coast Community Foundation hosted a workshop for charities, non-charities, and grant seekers. Lawyer Margaret Mason reviewed the complicated rules governing non-profit organizations and charities. Of interest to the Foundation and our grantees, she reviewed the circumstances in which a non-charity may collaborate with a charity for the purpose of applying for charitable funding.

Foundation Executive Director, Wendy Francis, presented on the Foundation's interest in supporting projects that address the issues raised by Vital Signs, as well as the Foundation's deadlines for granting in 2018.
