“Meet the Funders” for small Community Groups

An event for small grass-root community groups to be put in touch with funders who may

be able to support your work. Local community groups can hear about different funding

and discover what kind of local projects funders may wish to support financially.

'Meet the Funders' is an event providing access to funding information for community


It is an opportunity for your group to discuss your ideas with potential funders and collect a

range of information about possible sources of grant aid and the various support available

to them.

The event also offers the groups an opportunity to meet and work together.

Representatives from funding bodies such as Cornwall Community Foundation and SITA

They have been around the county to various different locations and our next stop is Fowey on the 25th September at the Fowey Library between 10am and 2.30pm.

If you are in or around the Fowey area and have any questions or need any support for your Community Group, why don’t you pop in and say hello and they can have a chat about the support they can provide. Any community group - small or large - can take advantage of this free opportunity! We are joined this time by a colleague who works on the Coastal Communities project, so come down to find out more about the work he does and the funding he may be able to source for a coastal project.
