members or volunteers for professional development opportunities of their own
Team Leadership Grants (value $5,000) - to be used by teams of two or more

The program gives charities the flexibility to take
advantage of a development opportunity that best meets their needs. Examples
could include anything from formal courses, conferences or training programs to
informal learning experiences of the applicant's own design that helps advance professional
development and organizational goals.
Since the launch of the Leadership Grants Program
in 2006, the PricewaterhouseCoopers Canada Foundation has awarded more than
$973,000 in grants to 358 recipients from across the country.
