Over the coming weeks, The Trust will host several bidders' conferences for all providers interested in applying for funding opportunities with The Trust. The first two conferences are listed below. 
Note: There will be only one conference for each funding category (Out-of-School, Parenting, etc.) AND those planning to attend must register. The conferences will be the best opportunity to ask questions - and to have them answered in the moment. Questions can also be asked post-conference by email.  
An important networking component is built into each of the conferences. The first hour and last half-hour of the session will be dedicated to meet and greet - be sure to bring your business cards and/or flyers that describe what you do. Networking allows providers the chance to connect with potential partners - critical to the success of your application for funding.
