“Finding the Funds” is aimed at staff, volunteers or trustees of voluntary and community groups who are relatively new or who have little fundraising experience. It will be most relevant for small groups or projects looking for funding up to £10,000.
This training workshop will increase awareness of the range of funding sources available, look at how to complete a funding application, and help your group to plan ahead.
The cost of this training is FREE for up to 2 representatives of HVA member organisations, as it has been subsidised by Hastings Borough Council and East Sussex County Council. However there will be a £40 penalty for non-attendance. The cost of each place for non-HVA members is £40.
