Oxfordshire Funders’ Forum 2017
Tuesday 13 June, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pmFree
OCF held its first Funders’ Forum in October last year, when trustees and representatives from a number of local and national trusts came together to share experiences about how best to support the voluntary sector. From our discussions, a number of themes emerged, one of which was the value of sharing knowledge about the funding landscape, to understand who else was funding particular projects and where the greatest need was.
Some trusts were also concerned about carrying out sufficient due diligence on organisations, or being able to evaluate the impact of their grants. It was suggested that OCF might host a ‘knowledge hub’ to support trusts and foundations in these enquiries.
Having considered how best OCF could help, we have identified some existing resources that may be able to plug the gap and support the sector, both to raise funds and give out funds more effectively. We are very pleased that 360 Giving and The Good Exchange have offered to come and explain how digital innovation is developing in the charitable sector, and how it may be able to resolve some of the issues discussed at our first forum.
If you are involved with a local trust or foundation and are interested in attending, please contact email@example.com.
