FINANCING YOUR ORGANISATION
There are various ways of generating income to support your organisation to grow. This could be by trading and contracts or through grants and donations.
Grants - Grants are time-limited sources of funding that usually do not need to be paid back. You can also search local and national funds yourself by visiting Funding Scotland, or if you get stuck contact us to speak with our Funding Officer. See latest grants available to the left.
Trading - Many not-for-profit organisations generate at least some of their income by selling goods or services; also known as trading. Social enterprises will usually generate most of their income through trading.
Contracts - There is also opportunity for third sector organisations to generate income through successfully bidding, winning and delivering public sector contracts and there is support for your organisation to become "tender ready". You can register with Public Contracts Scotland to see all available contracts.
INSPIRE AND CONNECT
One thing we believe is that things happen when you work and learn together with others.
We run a variety of inspiring trainings and events that can help you learn how to better manage your organisation and connect with other like-minded people in your area.
We also manage a variety of networks including the Moray Social Enterprise Network , Future Governance Forum , Health and Wellbeing Forum , Children & Young People Forum , CLD (Community Learning & Development) Forum and the Volunteer Managers' Network. These are great opportunities to learn and be inspired by other projects, and networks.
