Economic Change CIC is offering a free funding workshop to explore support available for charities and social enterprises to help fund investment readiness. Economic Change is one of the preferred providers for The Big Potential Breakthrough Fund.
Economic Change CIC is offering free support to charities and social enterprises to help them apply for grants to fund (if we are chosen as your preferred provider):
– Improvements to their social impact monitoring
– Data management systems using Salesforce CRM
– Business Strategy and Feasibility Studies
Big Potential Breakthrough, a BIG Lottery Fund grant fund, will deliver approximately £10m of grant funding over 3 years to eligible VCSE organisations with the aim of improving the sustainability, capacity and scale of VCSE organisations in order that they may deliver greater social impact. The programme aims to raise awareness of the social investment market and support VCSEs who want to prepare themselves for social investment.
Big Potential has two possible application routes – Breakthrough and Advanced. Both routes are now open for application, though we will focus primarily on guidance for the Breakthrough route, with grants available between £25,000 and £75,000 to undertake more in-depth investment readiness work.
We’ll talk you through the kind of support that we can offer under the Big Potential scheme and how we can work with you through the application and delivery process. We will provide attendees with further information about how to define your requirements & specification to help you plan a realistic budget and also provide guidance on your proposal.
