Meet the Funders (MtF) is an innovative year-long programme that strengthens community work in Cornwall. Much of that community work involves faith-based organisations making their beliefs practical through social action.

About Meet the Funders

The Meet the Funders programme runs throughout the year and is open to people of all faith and none.

It begins with a main spring event where major local and national funders meet participants seeking funding for social projects. The Spring event is supported by a series of smaller community workshops. The workshops take participants through the key stages of developing, funding, and sustaining a community social action project.

Meet the Funders workshops are delivered with people who have direct, lived experience of developing and growing their own projects. Participants frequently comment that our ‘Experts Through Experience’ give them the inspiration, confidence and common sense ideas to take their projects forward.

Because of Covid-19 restrictions, we will be running our workshops online and interspersing each workshop with an interactive surgery following from each of the workshop topics.
