Free online “Meet the Funders” event for groups in Somerset this week (Thursday 6th June 2024 from 11:30am-12:30pm)

Spark Somerset has arranged a “Meet the Funders: Social Investment Special” online event this week for voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCFSE) organisations in Somerset.

“Meet the Funders” is free to attend and will place on Thursday 6th June 2024 from 11:30am-12:30pm.

Amelia Thompson from Somerset Community Foundation and Leila Sharland from Resonance Ltd will each share information about their current funding opportunities, including blended grant and social investment funds, the type of projects they support, how much you can apply for and information on the application process.

Social investment funding needs to be repaid, and many groups are – understandably – unsure if it is an appropriate or viable option for them. This session will provide an opportunity explore any ideas you might have around this method of income generation – no matter how early stage your thinking is – and to find out what support and flexibility there might be, if things don’t quite go to plan.

Tickets to this event are freely available to staff and volunteers from voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCFSE) organisations in Somerset, and will be of particular interest to those responsible for fundraising for their group.

Further information is available on Eventbrite, where you can also register to attend.

Many thanks to Bryony Mounter (she/her), Events and Marketing Administrator at Spark Somerset, for contacting the GRIN office with details of this event.
