Liberton/Gilmerton and South Central Neighbourhood Partnerships are organising a “MEET THE FUNDERS” event which will take place on THURSDAY, 6th MAY between 1.00 pm and 4.00 pm in The Faith Mission Centre, 548 Gilmerton Road.

The event will take the form of a Market Stall and you are invited to drop-in throughout the afternoon and take the opportunity to speak face-to-face with representatives from a number of grant giving organisations.

This event has already been run in other areas of the city and has proved very popular, particularly given the current financial climate. For your information some of those funders participating in previous events include The Lottery, Co-operative Group, Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, People’s Postcode Trust Fund, Biffaward, MacRobert Trust, Cattanach Charitable Trust, and WREN.

Maureen Thompson from CEC Services for Communities is currently contacting potential funders which will include the well known ones. However, if there are lesser known grant giving organisations that you are aware of and would like to see participate, please let Maureen know as soon as possible and we will try to get them there on the day.
