SCVO’s ‘Meet the Funder’ event makes a welcome return for 2017

This, just in from Sandwell Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO)…

Having taken a year out in 2016, Wednesday 22nd November sees the return of SCVO’s Meet the Funder event for 2017.

With a focus on Social Capital and Social Investment, this year’s conference and funding fair will be an excellent learning opportunity; sharing good practice and the experiences of others across all things funding-related. And let’s not forget the opportunity to network and forge productive relationships that contribute to the wider benefit and overall sustainability of the region’s voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.

The day combines a keynote address with a number of workshop streams – you can hear directly from funders (including Big Lottery, Ibstock Cory and the Arts Council) about their opportunities, together with hints and tips on how to apply or how about some practical guidance around social media or fundraising from wills and legacies?

And not forgetting our ‘Funder Marketplace’, where you can have a one-to-one conversation with a range of funders, both large and small.
Places are strictly limited to 200, so it really is “first come, first served”: when we reach 200 people there will be no more places released, so early booking is strongly recommended and encouraged!!

Including refreshments and a buffet lunch, the event costs just £20 per ticket for ‘small groups’ (those with an annual income of less than £15,000) and £30 per ticket for ‘large groups’ (those with an annual income of more than £15,000 – incl. statutory bodies) – pricing, particularly for small groups, has been made as accessible as possible thanks to the generosity of our event sponsors (to-date): Big Lottery Fund, Charity Bank and Good Finance.
