FREE webinars for rural and regional community groups - Alternative Ways to Fund Your Organisation

 

FRRR has teamed up with Our Community to host three webinars specifically designed to help rural, regional and remote community groups to access more funding.

The aim of these webinars is to demystify some of the funding options beyond grants, and to give you the knowledge and tools on how to go about it.

These sessions will build on the Seeking Funding - how to access the funding to turn your project into a reality webinar, run in 2014, as well as other resources like the tips from Ann Bichel on successfully seeking funding.

The webinars will cover three topics:

  1. Planned Giving, including Bequests - 1pm AEST, Thursday 14 July
  2. Sponsorships - 1pm, AEST, Wednesday 27 July
  3. Crowd-Funding- 1pm AEST, Wednesday, 10 August

Each webinar will last for one hour, with time for questions.

Best of all, they will feature practical examples about how other community groups in rural, regional or remote areas have used these tools to help strengthen their community and address pressing community needs.
