Event description
Funding Club for small community groups in Reading who are new to applying for funding or would like to learn the basics.

About this Event

Introduction

Funding Club is a monthly forum hosted by RVA for those who are new to making funding applications or need a refresher. It will run from March to July 2020, with a different focus each month.

We recommend you attend all the sessions to get the most out of Funding Club, as each session will build on the previous session. By the end of the series, will have learnt basic skills and knowledge for what is needed when applying for small pots of funding (anything from £100 up to a maximum of £10,000).

You will most likely have some tasks to do in between sessions so that you can practically apply what you have learnt to your own community group, please therefore ensure that the person attending from your group has the knowledge about the group and will most likely be a committee member or a key volunteer.

Who it's for

Small, mostly volunteer led community groups who are either new to applying for funding or would like to learn/refresh their basic skills.

You might be a trustee or a volunteer of the community group. We suggest a maximum of two people from one organisation.

These sessions are restricted to groups who are offering services or activities in Reading. If you do not deliver services or activities in Reading, please contact RVA in advance to see if space is available.
