Leading and Learning Program

Network Learning Fund

Overview +

The Network Learning Fund is one of two funding streams of the Leading and Learning Program. It provides support to groups of organizations who wish to explore a shared concern, challenge, or area of common interest.

Partner organizations submit a group application that details their proposed initiative. Initiatives could include a curated study tour, peer shadowing at a specific organization engaging in innovative practices and initiatives, or attending a conference, festival, or symposium, coupled with pre- and post-event meetings.

The fund is designed to encourage shared learning and provide opportunities to develop professional leadership, strengthening sector relationships, and create informal communities of peers who are motivated to pursue collaborative work.

Eligibility +

Applicants to the program must work in one of Metcalf’s three program areas – the Environment, the Performing Arts, or Inclusive Local Economies – and have a current, valid charitable registration from the Canada Revenue Agency.

Applications can be submitted from a group consisting of representatives from a minimum of three non-profits, one of which must be identified as the lead charitable organization. Each non-profit may have more than one leader participate in the program.

For 2017 deadlines, only organizations based in the City of Toronto are eligible to apply.
