If you think SMT's Digital Campaigning Certificate program may be a good fit for you and you need help paying for it, this application is for you. Many funders are interested in supporting the capacity of grantees online. And many organizing networks are interested in supporting affiliates and partners at much lower group rates.
To qualify your organization must be working for systemic change using face-to-face offline organizing (not primarily using online tools). You can also be a labor union.
This application is designed to take 10-15 minutes to complete.
After clicking "Submit" you will receive an email that includes your responses as well as a link you can use to update those responses if necessary. Someone will be in touch with you shortly.
Before you start completing the application, (1) have you checked to see if a network you belong to (or a funder) would consider organizing a group rate to bring the cost down for you to 1/3 the normal rate? (2) have you checked with current funders (if any) to see if they have capacity-building funds to help?(3) have you confirmed the maximum you can pay? SMT is not able to make full scholarships.(4) is your supervisor or Executive Director or board member willing to join in on a 15-minute call to discuss?
You will be asked to report on those questions in the application. We won't be able to process your application without those steps being taken.
