September Members' Meeting

Governance, regulation and compliance Financial sustainability

Thursday 23 September 2021

Funding and grantmaking

With decreased government support and the UK departure from the European Union, the pool of available funding for many organisations has diminished.

How can an organisation tackle this issue and also ensure they deliver the best possible outcomes for their stakeholders?

Join us for our monthly CFG Members’ Meeting this September to discuss how charities are dealing with reduced funding opportunities, and to hear a practical guide to funding and grantmaking. This meeting will also provide you with useful tips to help you secure future funding.


Online via Zoom.

Who is the event for?

This meeting is free and available to CFG members only.
