It's time to talk in 2020

The Community Foundation is running one of its popular Time to Talk round table discussions throughout 2020.

Time to Talk sessions are open to anyone connected with a group, charity, or support agency, and we welcome volunteers, staff members, consultants, fundraisers or trustees. The sessions have no agenda but are an opportunity for those attending to share thoughts, ideas, good practice, and understand more about the Foundation.

“I thought I already knew all that I needed to know about the Community Foundation and its grant giving programmes, but I was wrong.  I gained new knowledge and had the opportunity to talk a little bit about our work and gain some advice and some networking.”

The session will be hosted by two Community Foundation staff and there will be time set aside at the end to give you a chance to network and make new contacts. We will provide tea, coffee and sandwiches. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements. 

This event is in a fully accessible room on the first floor of Philanthropy House. It can be accessed via an accessible lift, and has an accessible toilet on the same floor. There is a hearing loop available. Please let us know if you have any accessibility requirements.

“Thank you so much for 90 minutes that were informative, encouraging, relaxed, confidence boosting, and very worthwhile.”

So, if you want to learn more about the Community Foundation or have any questions about how you put yourselves in the best position to be successful with your applications, please come along.
