Fundraising support

Friday, 22 May 2020

Folk Office recognise that these uncertain times will created added stresses and pressures impacting on the sustainability of local groups. Whilst most groups and Districts have not lost money, they have all lost income during the period of closure. To support the financial sustainability of local groups the following support will be provided:

  • Weekly funding newsletter, highlighting local funding opportunities 
  • Funding bid proof-reading, simply email
  • Example funding applications

Our first example funding application is an Awards for All application, produced by Ros Epson (Lewisham & Greenwhich District). The draft application provided is focused on initial outreach activities and volunteer training as groups make steps towards reopening. Awards for All are keen to support local community organisations to address the impact of Covid-19, supporting community cohesion, improving local environments and skill development.

Funding support is provided by individual volunteers and Woodcraft Folk's Director of Development please allow 7 days for feedback on any draft application.
