NGO Training Fund

The Non-Government Organization Training Fund (NGOtf) falls under the auspices of the Yukon Government’s Department of Advanced Education. The Yukon Government provides the funding and VBY administers the fund. The fund is designed to support stand alone workshops or short-term organizational training in areas such as:

  • Human Resources Management
  • Succession Planning
  • Volunteer Management
  • Financial Management
  • Information Management
  • Communications and/or Marketing
  • Risk Management
  • Strategic Planning

To be eligible, the training must assist a non-profit agency as a whole, be undertaken by more than one individual (staff and volunteers) linked to the organization, and must have lasting benefits for the organization. 

Any Yukon non-profit organization that is registered as a Society with YG Corporate Affairs is eligible to apply to this fund. Individuals are not eligible to apply.
