MEET THE FUNDERS – in partnership with the University of Chichester
VAAC were delighted to welcome over 80 delegates from a host of Arun and Chichester community groups, charities and CICs to meet 15 local and national funders at VAAC’s funding fair.
Local groups had the opportunity to meet with national funders including: Arts Council, Big Lottery Fund, Groundwork (Tesco Bags of Help scheme) and Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). Local funders included: South Downs National Park, Sussex Community Foundation, West Sussex County Council, Chichester District Council
Delegates also heard all about Crowdfunding and how to run a campaign by Anne Strachan of CrowdfundUK.
“This was well organised – easy to find your way around. Not too busy and the exhibitors were really useful contacts to make – some I had not thought of as potential funders”.
“Excellent opportunity to find out what’s available. Good contacts made. Very relevant topic for workshops”.
The event was kindly supported by Sussex Community Foundation and the University of Chichester.
