Event description
For community groups particularly in South Cambridgeshire and other rural areas

About this Event

We are running an evening session aimed particularly at community groups working in rural areas. We will look at successful online fundraising ideas and other ways of raising finance beyond grant funding. This is an opportunity to hear from other community groups about:

• Running a successful crowdfunding campaign

• Hosting an online community fundraiser including raffles and competitions

The Coop will join us to talk about their role in creating local forums to share resources and support communities to make things happen. We will also touch on social finance and community share schemes which some communities have been able to utilise to save crucial community assets.

The session is a chance to hear what others have done, ask questions, share your own ideas and experience and influence the content of future CCVS sessions. The event is aimed particularly at groups in South Cambridgeshire and other rural communities across Cambridgeshire.
