With just under THREE WEEKS to go now until Falkirk Funders Fayre 2020, we’re celebrating by focusing on THREE of our exhibitors in this week’s spotlight article:
- SCVO’s Funding Scotland
- Foundation Scotland
- Falkirk Schools Charity Board
Funding Scotland (part of the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations) is a free service providing access to up to date, high quality information on funding opportunities.
This is the team’s first year at Falkirk Funders Fayre, where they hope to speak with people from Falkirk’s many different communities about the benefits of the service.
Funding Scotland is free to any group or organisation in Scotland and provides a search of over 1,300 funding opportunities including grants, loans, prizes and other support. There are different account types available, offering different alerts and bulletins at different prices – however, the whole database can be accessed with a free standard account. (SCVO has also worked closely with their partners in different local authorities, and the Scottish Rural Network, to provide free Premium accounts in some areas.)
Under the strapline “Where Funding Meets Community,” Foundation Scotland has been a regular exhibitor at Falkirk Funders Fayre for years.
They are an independent charity established to strengthen local communities by providing a source of funding to community-led projects across Scotland, established to help people and organisations give to good causes effectively and inexpensively.
Since 1996, the Foundation has been delivering innovative funding programmes, distributing over £70 million to third sector groups. Our knowledge of the sector allows us to find lesser known charities ensuring our awards create lasting change.
As part of a national movement of community foundations undertaking strategic grant making and facilitating philanthropy, Foundation Scotland aims to ensure their funding contributes to achieving lasting impact in communities across Scotland.
At its core, Foundation Scotland aims to help smaller, lesser-known groups and organisations throughout the country by making funding more effective and engaging for everyone.
Falkirk Schools Charity Board
A mainstay of the event, Falkirk Schools Charity Board (FSCB) provides grants of up to £1,000 for educational projects or recreational facilities across the Falkirk Council area.
Groups and organisations interested in applying for funding through FSCB must have a constitution, and endorsed by the local School Management Team.
