Social Media Grants for NFPs in WA – Apply Now!
The Bankwest Foundation has recently announced the second round of Social Media Grants for not-for-profit organisations in Western Australia looking to develop their social media strategy for long-term impact.
The purpose of the grants is to better equip Volunteering Involving Organisations (VIOs) to communicate via social media channels with the primary aim of attracting and retaining a strong volunteer workforce. This is a unique opportunity to participate in ongoing social media training, mentorship, development and support throughout 2016.
There are up to 10x $10,000 grants available to WA-based NFPS, which will give them access to a 12 month mentoring program delivered by Hancock Creative, an award-winning creative agency who have specifically designed this program - in collaboration with the Bankwest Foundation and ASF - to help not-for-profits in an area they need it most.
Ms Paula Rogers from Bapistcare, a 2015 grant recipient, says, "The mentoring that we have received has provided the courage to dare and to trial different methods of communication …Our ability to market using social media will be part of our future proofing to position our organisation for current and future clients. It has really given us a competitive advantage in a budget constrained NFP world."
