Governance Advice & Updates
2020 has rocked the sector with 70% respondents of a recent Third Sector survey saying the pandemic has negatively impacted their fundraising efforts.
The year may be coming to a close, but there’s one key date that could really boost your donations and put you back on track – and that’s Giving Tuesday, taking place this year on December 1
In a recent webinar, held in partnership with Salesforce.org, we dove deep into the date and showcased three charities that are creating successful campaigns around the day. We’ve wrapped up all the key highlights and how-to’s and packaged it in this report: How to get the most from Giving Tuesday.
The Derbyshire County Council (DCC) COVID-19 Emergency Fund aims to support voluntary and community sector organisations with funding to allow them to them to continue to play a key role in the local response to COVID-19.
Formally constituted organisations can apply for a maximum of £2,000. Non-constituted organisations can apply for a maximum of £250.
Applications are reviewed on a regular basis. No date has been set for closing the fund, but they would recommend that organisations submit their application as soon as possible.
