Interested in attending CAGP’s 26th National Conference on Strategic Philanthropy but don’t have the means to do so? Assistance may be available!

With the generous contribution of many CAGP Chapters, as well as other partners and supporters, we are pleased to offer a number of conference bursaries so our members can access to this outstanding professional opportunity.

Bursaries are allocated to support both members affiliated with a local Chapter or within a specific community as well as members from elsewhere in Canada. That means, even if your Chapter or an organization from your community is not sponsoring a bursary you are still encouraged to apply.

Bursaries cover the full Conference early-bird registration fee (including taxes); those marked with a star (*) also include travel and accommodation (accommodation and economy transportation only).

The following bursaries are available for the 2019 conference in Montreal:

The CAGP Conference Bursary Program is intended to enable both charity gift planners and professional advisors to participate in this outstanding professional development opportunity where financial constraints are a barrier to access. We also seek to strengthen cultural diversity among our delegates. As such, while anyone may apply for a bursary, we do prioritize applications from those in small organizations or companies with limited professional development budgets, and from members of diverse communities.

Applicants must be a current CAGP member and have been a member in good standing for at least 3 months prior to the application deadline.

Only one application per organization/company will be considered, with the exception of national bodies with local/regional offices.

2018 bursary recipients are not eligible to submit an application for the 2019 Conference.

Unless otherwise stated, bursaries cover early bird registration fees only (plus applicable taxes).

In certain instances, a bursary provided may opt to cover travel and accommodation expenses. Applicants will be expected to cover those expenses directly and submit for reimbursement.

For more information on the available bursaries and coverage, please see above.
