GrantNet Funding Conference

21 July 2017

With funding becoming ever more competitive we all need to increase our sustainability through more effective fundraising especially if we want to continue making a real difference to the lives of those we serve.

This is a free event for NICVA and RCN members to help you to get a key funding skill under your belt, i.e. – making successful grant applications.

What will be happening?

The day will start with refreshments at 9.45am followed by 2 very short presentations on the new system of Fundraising Regulation in Northern / The Code of Fundraising Practice and Developing a Fundraising Plan.

Participants can then attend one morning and one afternoon workshop, where individual funders will take them through what makes a 'good' application for them.

The five funding workshops available will be:

  1. Halifax Foundation for NI (Charities only)
  2. Big Lottery Fund (Awards for All)
  3. Big Lottery Fund (People in Communities)
  4. Trusthouse Charitable Foundation (Charities only)
  5. Heritage Lottery Fund (Sharing Heritage)

There will also be extended coffee and lunch breaks so that participants can meet other key NI funders including Community Foundation for NIBBC Children in NeedEnkalonBig Lottery FundHeritage Lottery Fund and others...
