The list is in date order and some deadlines are very soon. They will not be applicable to all of you (most are for specific regions), and you might find that none of them are suitable for your district. I have selected them from the latest Funding Central alert as being the most appropriate for WF districts. I hope that a quick scan of this email will allow you to find those sources appropriate to your district.
For over ninety years, Woodcraft Folk has been working with children and young people with the aim of building a world based on equality, friendship, peace and social justice.
Co-op Energy are offering a Christmas/New Year prize to Woodcraft districts in a new prize draw. All you have to do is compare the price you pay your current supplier with the price you could pay Co-operative Energy and you'll be entered into a prize draw to win a £150 donation for your District.
Congratulations to three districts, Bromley, Clapham and Chorlton & Whalley Range, who have been selected as recipients of the Co-op Local Community Fund.
As you will know, funding from the Co-op that regions and districts used to receive has been reduced or stopped. However, a new Local Community Fund has been set up to support local charities and the first recipients have been selected, including at least three Woodcraft districts.
If you're a district treasurer/district co-ordinator, do you think about your core costs - rent and group registration, for example? Have you considered how many children you need to make the district sustainable? Do you know what the minimum number of children you need to cover the core costs is?
We recently announced a partnership between Woodcraft Folk and Co-operative Energy. Woodcraft Folk will receive a donation of £25 each time someone switches to Co-operative Energy.
We're promoting this partnership with a prize draw between 15 May and 15 June. If
