New Funds for Bellingham!

Complete a short survey to help us to put on a valuable and relevant fundraising seminar in Bellingham.

Bellingham Regeneration Arts Group (BRAG) has been successful in an application to Arts Fundraising and Philanthropy for a grant  to deliver a training seminar on how to find new ways to collectively fund raise. The seminar will run in February or March and we need your help to make the content as relevant and useful as possible. 
This is a great opportunity for BRAG to hold an event and explore how we can use our varied skills, expertise and knowledge to bring more money for arts activities in the ward and give us focus in the upcoming 12 months.
We hope to hold a seminar that will give us the space to explore:

  • Joint fundraising bids and the advantages and disadvantages of doing this e.g. a school and an artist, or an arts organisation, a youth group and a local venue
  • How to improve our knowledge of new funding opportunities and share our fundraising plans, particularly through capitalising on the Fellowship Inn as a new venue
  • How to support each other and try to avoid duplication 
  • Learn about free methods of giving, eg. Give as You Live
  • Brainstorm ideas about how an ‘arts general fund’ could be gathered for Bellingham  

Help us decide how we spend the money from this grant by completing our short online survey- it should only take a few minutes.
