You can download the bulletin here
In this month's Income Generation bulletin find out about issues making the news from the sector and upcoming funding opportunities and deadlines, including three Southwark opportunities:
The Main Grants programme is aimed at organisations with a turnover of less than £500,000, providing grants averaging £7,500 to work that makes a positive difference to the lives of people who face significant disadvantage and have limited choices and opportunities because they lack skills or face difficulties/discrimination in accessing resources.
Deadline: 3 October 2017 (2 pm)
The Neighbourhoods Fund supports community projects that make a difference to the lives and neighbourhoods of local people in Southwark. Applicable projects can apply for between £500-£5,000. Projects are expected to be ward-based within a community council area and take place between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2019.
Deadline: 23 October 2017 (12pm)
The Foundation's grants average £2,000 and is available to assist schools and other groups (also individuals) to purchase equipment for the benefit of children in Southwark, supporting extra curricula activities (e.g. school trips, after school clubs, holiday clubs, uniformed organisations) for children and young people. The Foundation will usually visit organisations to ensure that the scheme is viable but cannot afford to ever fully support a project. They are unable to guarantee continuing support to projects, and for this reason, are unwilling to take responsibility for funding the cost of salaries and administration.
Deadline: 17 November 2017
This 12 month programme is responding to the growing need of small locally led groups to cover their day to day costs. The aim is to provide funding for groups’ core costs - meaning expenditure that is not connected to delivering projects but focusing on investing in the organisation as a whole, such as basic running costs. Grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 are available for organisations with an annual income of £100,000 or under in the last financial year.
Deadline: 16 October 2017
