Social Media Grants for NFPs in WA
We are delighted to open the next round of Bankwest Foundation Social Media Grants for not-for-profit organisations in Western Australia who are 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 2017.
There are up to 10x $10,000 grants available to WA-based NFPS, which will enable them to participate in a 12 month social media 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."
