CKO Sprint will again be offering our Strategic Planning Funding Program and Safe Sport Training funding to member organizations this year.
Strategic Planning Funding Program
CKO Sprint will be offering financial support of $500/organization, to a maximum of $3500 for our clubs/Divisions to engage in their own strategic planning process.
Those interested in applying for our strategic planning funding must complete the online application and hire a strategic planning service consultant by March 25, 2022. If more than seven (7) organizations apply for support, completed applications will be evaluated on a first come first served basis. To qualify for this funding, clubs/Divisions must be a member in good standing with CKO Sprint, CKC and either EOD or WOD.
Organizations may use any strategic planning service that meets their needs. To assist in the process, CKO Sprint has created a partnership with Hector Carranco and Strategic Planning Facilitation Service to provide facilitated virtual strategic planning at a significantly reduced rate.
“I can’t recommend this service and Hector’s skills enough. We are now a more energized and focused organization as a result.” – Laura Clemenhagen, Commodore, Collingwood Paddling Club
Safe Sport Training Funding
CKO Sprint will be providing up to $11,000 in funding to support Safe Sport screening requirements, as per CKC’s Safe Sport Policy. Eligible expenses include up to $28/Level 2 Enhanced Police Information Check (E-PIC) screening, and up to $60/Level 3 E-PIC and Vulnerable Sector Check screening. All clubs and Divisions requesting funding must submit a completed CKO Sprint – Expense Policy – Safe Sport screening form by February 18, 2022.
The funding is available to organizations who have not previously received program funding, as well as those who received funding based on any new expenses.
