The coronavirus pandemic demonstrated how quickly funders and funding can be adapted when a crisis arises. Twelve months on we want to explore funding practices that have worked well for the sector, and how we can ensure we don’t slip back into old ways of working.
Join us for this interactive discussion to create food for thought on good funding practice in Scotland.
- Overall aim
At this event SCVO will be joined by leaders from Scottish funding organisations to reflect on funding practices over the past twelve months and have interactive discussions on what has worked well, what could be better and what can we leave behind.
Our confirmed panellists are:
- Nick Addington, Chief Executive, William Grant Foundation
- Carolyn Sawers, Acting Chief Executive, Corra Foundation
All voluntary organisations are invited to join us to share their experiences and help share more flexible and effective funding relationships in the future.
This one-hour online event will reflect on the past twelve months of funding practice across Scotland, enabling discussion between funders and community and voluntary sector organisations about what the future of funding in Scotland could look like.
How important is unrestricted funding? How important is project funding?
Organisations will have the opportunity to hear first-hand from three Scottish funding organisations about their learning and development over the past year, and how this has influenced their future plans.
SCVO will then host a discussion focussing on funding practice which has enabled communities and organisations to operate effectively and meet the needs of their beneficiaries. We will explore what funders could do more of, differently or leave behind to enable lasting and meaningful change across Scotland’s communities.
SCVO will use key learning and information from this event as a mandate from the sector to inform its agenda of work with funders in Scotland over the coming twelve months.
