Pitch to the Panel is back! Greenham Trust is once again offering charitable organisations the opportunity to pitch for £100,000 in a Dragon’s Den Style competition to be held at Newbury Corn Exchange on Wednesday 8 May.
This year Greenham Trust is targeting applicants seeking to raise between £30k and £100k of funding towards a capital project or groundbreaking new service. This sum is larger than a reactive grant and an ideal opportunity to kickstart fundraising without the requirement for matched funding.
The deadline for applications is Friday 8th March. To apply you need to create a funding application on www.thegoodexchange.com and email [email protected] with your project reference number.
Already have a live project on The Good Exchange? You can enter this providing it has not already received funding from Greenham Trust other than Trust Top Up.
Not sure if you are eligible? Call GreenhamTrust on 01635 817444 or email [email protected].
In 2017, SeeAbility received £10,211 towards the refurbishment of its gym and replacement of its 20-year old equipment. Miriam Oppenheim, SeeAbility’s Trusts and Communities Manager explains why the immediate funding was so crucial for them:
“The grant has been a real game changer and has enabled SeeAbility to be more innovative at a time when the young people we support, need it the most. If we hadn’t received the funding from Greenham Trust, it would have taken us longer to secure this specialist equipment which is now making an extraordinary difference to peoples’ independence each and every day.
“When you have a forum like The Good Exchange that allows you to reach out to a number of different donors, it’s worth putting in the extra effort to develop a larger application. It is worth it in the long run too because you could build some really valuable partnerships out of it!”
