Does your volunteer organisation need a cash injection?

Does your vol org need a cash injection - your opportunity to pitch for funding - deadline noon 26 September 2018

Winchester City Council is inviting community groups, registered charities and not-for-profit voluntary organisations to come forward to pitch at their unique WINnovation one-off funding event.

Grants of up to £4000 are up for grabs for community activities or projects in the Winchester District, which specifically benefit local residents. Initiatives which are delivered in an entrepreneurial way, that are innovative, engaging, capacity building or which enhance the organisation's strategic development, are more likely to succeed.

Applications to ‘pitch’ should be submitted online by noon 26 September and grant decisions will be made at a special ‘Dragon’s Den’ style event from 3.30pm on Thursday 1 November in Winchester. The Panel will score the ‘pitches’ on the night and awards will be made at a short ceremony at the end of the evening. Shortlisted pitchers will also be given the opportunity to attend a pitching brief session on Tuesday 16 October, 10am-12pm in Winchester.
