Community Support

The Pictou County Partnership's Community Impact team is dedicated to increasing the capacity of the community impact sector.

This new, innovative program has been created to support non-profits and not-for-profits access vital resources and ultimately strengthen their impact within the County. Our purpose is to help these organizations become more financially resilient to do what they do best - support our communities here in Pictou County.

Key initiatives include:

  • Fund development support (grant locating, writing, and reporting support)

  • Matching organizations with volunteers from the community (more details coming soon)

  • Social enterprise development support.

  • Support with resource navigation and facilitation of collaboration opportunities

Grant Connect is a portal designed for charities and non-profits to search for and track funding opportunities from foundations, government, and corporations. This platform is a powerful tool that aggregates a vast array of grant opportunities from various sectors, making it easier for organizations to find and apply for the funding that best suits their needs.

Pictou County organizations interested in accessing Grant Connect can reach out to Mary Ellen Makhlouf, Community Impact Program Lead, by email to set up an appointment to use Grant Connect at the Pictou County Partnership's office.
