2011 January - Funding groups in crisis
This discussion was about how funders are coping with distress calls from voluntary and community groups facing a crisis in their funding.
This discussion was about how funders are coping with distress calls from voluntary and community groups facing a crisis in their funding. What’s the best process and practice in deciding whether to try to rescue an organisation from the brink, or to carry on supporting a project beyond your initial funding period because it has failed to interest other funders or generate alternative sources of income? Are you providing a short term answer, stabilising the work, or putting good money into a floundering organisation?
We heard from:
- Amanda Tincknell, The Cranfield Trust: what are the Trust’s consultants currently reporting as the killer issues for the VCS?
- Ciaran Rafferty from The City Bridge Trust: funders’ approaches to these dilemmas
James Sinclair Taylor, Russell-Cooke Solicitors: What are the risks and legal implications for them and you of support attempts to rescue organisations that might collapse?
A report is available here.
