Community Foundation for Calderdale: new funding information event

March 24, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 3:15 pm

Your organisation is invited to hear how CFFC is developing its grants strategy and moving away from ‘automatic’ grant awards to a system that could recommend a hybrid (grant and loan) award or a pure loan.

As part of CFFC’s grants strategy groups in Calderdale can now access unsecured tailored finance between £5,000 and £75,000. This new fund will allow groups to invest in:

Capital Expenditure such as purchasing or renovating buildings.

Working capital to manage the time between spending money and receiving money

Development capital to help groups expand or replicate their service


They have partnered with the Key Fund, the leading providers of unsecured loans in the north of England. Key Fund are committed to helping you succeed, they are a social enterprise and as such they understand the sensitivities and challenges you face, which is why they offer workshops, 1:1 support and expertise you need when you need it.

They would like to invite you to their launch event where they will be running surgeries over lunch 12:00 – 1:30pm, should you wish to book a 15 minute slot to discuss with Key Fund your organisation and its suitability to apply. The running order for the event is as follows

  • 12:00 – 1:30pm: Networking and buffet lunch + one-to-one surgeries
  • 1:30pm: Welcome from Steve Duncan, CEO Community Foundation for Calderdale
  • 1.45pm: Three very different local organisations will join us to share their experiences of using finance to enhance their organisational offering
