Launch of Impact Readiness Fund

 

Seif

SIB have just announced the new round of the Impact Readiness Fund and Economic Change is an approved provider.

If you want to apply you must act quickly. Each provider has to pre-select just 5 applicants to work with by mid December. We are therefore inviting those interested to complete the pre-application form attached to this email and to submit to us by the 4th December.

Due to the criteria and size of the grant, we are only looking to work with applicants who have a clear Theory of Change model, and whom are now looking to improve their monitoring and reporting processes using Salesforce CRM.

About the Impact Readiness Fund:

Grants are available to help ambitious social ventures manage their performance and increase their social impact to attract social investment and win contracts.

Social investors and commissioners are interested in the social impact ventures achieve, but demonstrating this impact can be difficult. Many social ventures struggle to quantify their achievements without the right systems and expertise.

This fund offers grants and support to social ventures to understand and improve their social impact and demonstrate improvements to investors and commissioners.

Grants between £25,000 and £100,000 will be available to help ventures build infrastructure and skills required to manage their performance, increase their social impact, and attract social investment / win contracts.

• Help ventures collect and analyse data in order to drive efficiencies and improvements in service delivery and impact.
• Enable ventures to maximise and demonstrate social impact at the core of business planning
• Develop the skills, capacity, and systems to understand and improve their performance.
• Social ventures will be required to work with one of the fund’s approved support providers to develop a programme of impact readiness work and submit an application.

Before you apply please consult the application guidance at https://www.sibgroup.org.uk/impactready/

The deadline for applications to this fund is midday 8 January 2016.
