Funding Month 2024 – reflections of a successful event

This year, we hosted our second annual Funding Month, organised by Support Cambridgeshire and partners. Throughout the month, we held various online webinars open to groups across Cambridgeshire. Just like last year, we collaborated with several other CVSs across the UK to bring in national funders who shared about available funding opportunities. Additionally, we organised local events over two days, which were well attended.

In addition to events where funders discussed funding opportunities, we conducted two sold-out workshops on writing practical funding applications. While sign-ups for events started slow, there was an increased interest closer to the event dates. In total, 213 individuals from Cambridgeshire signed up for 21 events. Feedback from attendees of both national and local funder talks was positive, with most agreeing that they gained valuable insights for their organisations. Attendees of local events also noted an increase in their knowledge about funders.

Lastly, the feedback for our “Tips for Successful Grants” webinars was overwhelmingly positive, with 41% finding them extremely useful, 54% very useful, and the remaining 4% somewhat useful, accompanied by plenty of positive comments.

At Support Cambridgeshire, we strive to offer engaging events. If you want to provide feedback on our events, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We aim to make our events as useful as possible for groups across the county.
