For our international viewers.
(from Meanwhile in Canada)

Hello Funds Fans!  A BIG welcome to our new viewers and followers from all points in the cyber-community.  For those of you just tuning in, what we do here is provide timely updates on open funding calls, Request for Proposal opportunities and other juicy tidbits on where and how to find money for your community, your organization or for your client.  I also shamelessly promote the use of Professional Writers for any proposal writing and reporting requirements for reasons found in previous posts.  I do try to keep things fun and funny around here but for the really funny stuff you should check out and LIKE my FaceBook page.  We can also be found at and on Twitter @fundsblogger.

There’s been a streak of funding opportunities for First Nation organizations this past week and today we’ve got another great one.  Remember, if you can’t make use of the opportunity, you probably know of someone who can, so please share the good news!
