Funding for Charities and Community Groups

Taking place at the Gateway Conference Centre in Aylesbury is the great annual Funding Fair for Bucks charities.

One in five charities is facing jeopardy according to a recent report on the charity world. Community Impact Bucks have joined with their partners to open opportunities for funding to come into the county. The aim of the event, organised by the Buckinghamshire Funding Group is to help introduce a range of funders to charities in one place at one time. Last year thousands of £ of valuable funding was received following this event.

There are over 2,500 charities in Bucks and only 200 places available for this FREE event so we encourage people to book early.

Not only is it a chance to meet funders face to face and discuss your projects, a programme of workshops also offers great opportunities to learn more about funding. Discover the secrets of successful Crowd Funding and hear about the opportunities for developing your own income.

‘The traditional lines of funding for charities are diminishing and voluntary groups are having to look elsewhere. This event will introduce thousands of pounds of available funding.” Sara Greenwood, Sustainability Manager for Community Impact Bucks.

Among the line-up of funding experts is the leading light of Crowd Funder UK and local MD of the on-line company Make a Donation.

Delegates can select from one of the workshops on offer including:

(1) How to Diversify your Income
(2) Introduction to Crowdfunding
(3) Applying for Big Lottery Funding
(4) How to take part in the Vale Lottery

Information stalls will be available on a drop in basis all afternoon, for you to discuss your funding needs and to speak directly with funders about your projects.

Quotes from last year’s Funding Fair
“Being able to talk to informed individuals on a one to one basis made such a difference.”

“Discovering that funding exists – so many possibilities!”

“Not only speaking to the experts, but also fellow attendees who were very open and happy to advise from their experience, very helpful.”
