"Everything but the Grant" Conference
With grant funding becoming increasingly competitive, generating income from other sources is becoming ever more essential if we want to ensure that we can continue making a real difference to our clients in the future.
This free event for NICVA members will provide both information and inspiration on ways in which you can diversify your income and decrease your reliance on grants.
What does the event look like?
The day will start with registration and refreshments from 9.30am followed by a short presentation on the Fundraising Regulator and The Code of Fundraising Practice, which covers all forms of fundraising. You will then have the opportunity to hear from two inspiring NICVA member organisations about their own, personal experiences of diversifying their income.
Participants can then choose 2 workshops (from a choice of 4) where individual experts will take them through various alternatives to grant funding and how to begin to master them.
The 4 workshop topics will be:
- Corporate Fundraising (facilitated by Business in the Community)
- Community Fundraising/Events (facilitated by Cancer Focus NI)
- Tendering & Contracts
- Social Enterprises
There will also be opportunities to meet a range of other key organisations and talk through other potential sources of funding with them during coffee and lunch breaks.
How to get involved
More details about the workshops, along with information on the other organisations you can meet with on the day, will be available in the next few weeks. For now, you can simply register and get this key date firmly in your diary.
Due to demand we are limiting this event to 2 per organisation.
Please be aware that you may be charged if you don't attend an event you have registered for - even in the case of free to access events. Full details on our cancellation policy:
