Chaplaincy Perfect for bake-sales & toastie nights – reliable fundraisers! Atrium Can be used for sponsored event (eg. 24-hour Dance) Think Creatively! What has been done before, what works and what is new?
If you are needing some extra capital to develop your club then apply for a grant! The grant scheme is designed to help you go that little bit further than your funds allow Favourable grants include; new events, new equipment, special trips. Please ensure you complete the grant form correctly! Plan ahead and apply for money before the event happens (retrospective events are less likely to succeed)
Common problems with grants: Form not completed correctly (check the example online) Applying for an event which has already happened Already have the money available to run the event Not enough fundraising Once submitted, your grant with be brought to the next CED meeting and considered by the panel. If successful, you will be notified and funds transferred to your account If unsuccessful, you will receive feedback for next time
Ask for details (financial or membership) if you arent the president or treasurer Spend money without consulting your committee! Buy alcohol Buy something over £50 without a purchase order Spend more than you have… If you become overdrawn, your club will be suspended! Bring your fundraising money in separate bags if possible!
