Grants of up to £500 will be made to cover the cost of speakers, trainers and software to facilitate virtual meetings. Priority will be given to networks supporting sole fundraisers and activities supporting dialogue with donors. Deadline: Noon on the 12th of April for events taking place before 7th of September 2020.

Form AF&P:

We are operating in extraordinary circumstances and many of the conventional ways that networks choose to meet, and work will no longer be appropriate as the country adapts to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, and our government’s guidance around social distancing and self-isolation. As such, Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy is bringing forward its next allocation of Networks Funding to support the sector in thinking about new ways of working – innovative approaches to virtual support mechanisms, investing in software to help existing networks to sustain themselves, and ensuring that remote, sole fundraisers can feel part of something bigger during this difficult time. We want to ensure that what emerges from these networks will be embedded so we will additionally provide support to groups awarded funding in this round through access to our pool of Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy trainers.
