Meet the Funders – Tuesday 29 March 9.30am to 12pm on Zoom

Are you part of a not for profit voluntary or community group, Community Interest Company or a town or parish council within East Devon? Do you need funding? Ever wondered who your grant applications go to... Or have you ever had a conversation with the person who looks at your applications?

Making a successful grant application in this increasingly competitive field is often dependent upon understanding what a funder is really looking to invest in – what is going to press their buttons?

East Devon District Council is organising a FREE online Meet the Funder event. This will give you the important opportunity to meet some of our key local funders and to start to build that all-important relationship with them.

Funders coming along to talk about how they can help you:

  • Devon County Council
  • The National Lottery
  • Norman Family Trust
  • Gibbons Trust
  • Devon Community Foundation
  • Devon Communities Together
  • East Devon District Council

And possibly more….

Funders will be telling you what their assessment criteria and priorities are and you will have the opportunity to ask them questions.

All places must be booked in advance by 5pm Friday 25 March 2022, to book a place email: jbuckley@eastdevon.gov.uk or call 01395 517569

Cllr Megan Armstrong, East Devon District Council’s portfolio holder for sustainable homes and communities, said:

“I would urge any of East Devon’s hard working voluntary and community groups that are in need of funding now, or maybe in the future, to book their place on this free event. You’ll be able to find out more about all sorts of grants that you might be able to apply for, from the grants providers themselves!
