Speaking of bees, this week’s spotlight features on CharityBee, who offer the third sector bespoke support services and sector-specific advice, and Crowdfund Scotland, who you might remember have just announced their local workshops with Kelvin Valley and Falkirk LEADER.
This is the second year at Falkirk Funders Fayre for both organisations – why not come along and meet with them on Tuesday 10th March, 10am – 2pm at the Bowhouse Community Centre, Bowhouse Road, Grangemouth, FK3 0EU. Tickets are FREE, and can be booked through Eventbrite.
The CharityBee has been designed to give third sector organisations access to bespoke service support offerings which contain sector-specific advice and real value for money.
They aim to align the ethos, ethics, best practice and passion of the third sector with the business practices and commercial activities of the private sector, to create a new dynamic in partnership working. CharityBee’s founder has worked across sectors, and wanted to focus on crucial elements for services which often tend to be outsourced. They want to make sure their clients receive the right advice, not only for the sector they are working in but also for the specific need of their organisation.
By joining CharityBee, organisations can access discounted prices from a wide range of suppliers and service providers. They provdie a range of services, including:
- Health Insurance for UK Businesses
- HR and Employment Law
- Health and Safety Advice and Training
- Commercial Insurance
- Pricing and Tender Support
- Employee Benefits
- Corporate Governance
- Procurement Services
After giving last year’s afternoon presentation, as well as having a near-constant queue at their stall, Crowdfund Scotland is back with information on how your organisation can benefit from this increasingly popular and diverse fundraising method.
Crowdfund Scotland works in partnership 9 Scottish LEADER areas to help crowdfunding projects across Scotland turn their most innovative ideas into reality.
Their programme will provide coaching and support for projects in the 9 participating LEADER areas, including Kelvin Valley and Falkirk, along with a crowdfunding portal on the Crowdfunder platform, featuring crowdfunding LEADER projects and providing information about funding, workshops and support.
Crowdfunder and Crowdfund Scotland is a rewards-based crowdfunding platform, and has raised over £55 million for community, business and social enterprise projects across the country. On Crowdfunder, projects ask the crowd to support their ideas with pledges of money in return for a reward. Projects are also connected with funding partners, including more than 20 local authorities, Aviva, Virgin and M&S, who offer them grants and further support.
Come along and ask the local team on the day more about what crowdfunding is and its benefits, along with Crowdfund Scotland and their partnership with LEADER, including their upcoming workshops.
