Further fund raising opportunities for young people as Sportivate funding ends
Posted: Mon, 08 May 2017 16:32
9000 young people experienced Sportivate programmes between 2011 and 2017 in Bedfordshire. The programme saw hundreds of charities, clubs, youth organisations & schools benefit from delivery funding to provide new sport and activity, contributing to healthier lifestyles.
Sportivate funding has now come to an end in Bedfordshire, however there are still opportunities to generate funding. teamBEDS&LUTON remain committed to supporting community groups and clubs across Bedfordshire in the development and delivery of sport and physical participation programmes for young people, particularly those targeted at the least physically active within your community.
A great deal of support, advice and guidance is available through the organisation and our partners, to help groups such as your own identify potential sources of funding and develop and submit applications for funding. Details are available via the teamBEDS&LUTON website http://www.teambedsandluton.co.uk/funding or by emailing Tom; email@example.com or Graham; firstname.lastname@example.org
Have you considered crowdfunding as an option to raise funds? teamBEDS&LUTON have partnered up with Podium Partners, a registered charity, to provider Bedfordshire with its own charity based crowdfunding platform specifically for sport and physical activity related projects that encourage participation, educate, develop talent or provide facilities. Many other organisations are already using this organisation to help them generate funds, with over £100,000 raised in the last 12 months.
Donations are made through the charity. This means that all eligible donations receive gift aid. In practical terms this means that every £100 donated could be worth, after charges, £115 to the project.
