LCVS are holding a series of “meet the funder” events on Wednesday 6 February in partnership with local funder, John Moores Foundation (JMF).
Held at 151 Dale St, JMF staff will firstly hold an open “Information and Question and Answer” session from 9.30am – 10.45am. This will give an overview of how JMF funding operates and what its trustees are and aren’t looking for in an application.
Following this session groups will be able to meet with JMF staff on a one-to-one basis for a 40/45 minute appointment to discuss potential projects and eligibility and what is best to apply for. Appointments will be made on a first come, first served basis and are subject to a group’s eligibility to apply to JMF.
