We held our first Funding Network Event of 2020 on Wednesday 22nd January. We were delighted to welcome Claire Bowry, Chief Executive of The Eveson Charitable Trust as our guest speaker.
Claire, supported by Richard Mainwaring, Eveson Trustee gave a brilliant and informative presentation to 40 local charities and voluntary organisations about how to apply to the Eveson Charitable Trust, and how charities can improve their fundraising success with other potential funders.
The event was followed by a question and answer session with an an opportunity to network with colleagues from other charities. The event was kindly hosted by Kidwells Solicitors.
Will Lindesay, hvoss Chief Executive said "This was the first of several Funding Networks we plan to hold during 2020. Accessing funding from a range of charitable trust and other funding sources is a critically important to hvoss members and local charitable and community organisations".
"The Eveson Charitable Trust provides vital funding in supporting a range of local charities, all of whom provide public benefit activities enabling some of the most disadvantage in our communities to get the support they need" Will added.
"There has been some tremendously positive feedback on the function of the network. We are so grateful to Claire, Richard and everyone at Eveson Charitable Trust for giving us all such brilliant advice and guidance which will improve fundraising approaches of local charities in the future".
