Ideas for raising money for careLINK
Your local CVS
Use your local CVS (Council for Voluntary Service) for ideas.
To find your local CVS use navca’s search facility and enter your town, district or county.
Your local community
The work that ‘caring’ organisations do is so directly linked to the community, that direct requests for contributions from local businesses, groups, and even individuals has resulted in significant money being raised.
Ideas from existing users
“A charity’s best bet is to contact their local CVS (Council for Voluntary Service) who will always help with finding suitable funding sources. The charity would then have to go through the application process, and the CVS are always happy to check over an application/help with it before it is sent off. Our CVS sent us a list of possible suitable funders and we found one whose criteria matches the service we offer.”
“Because what we do helps locally, we wrote to local supporters and businesses. We had a great response.
Also local MPs may have a government grant to give to local community projects”
