“Financing Your Future Good Practice Guide” Firgrove Hotel Mitchelstown

Is your community group or charity concerned about the long-term stability of its service provision to the wider community? Is your organisation in need of new and diverse income sources? Can your group adapt positively to the changing Irish funding landscape?

Ballyhoura Development hosts a workshop called “Financing Your Community & Social Enterprise Project” which will be delivered by The Wheel, on Thursday, 1st December, at 7pm at The Firgrove Hotel, Mitchelstown, for local community groups wishing to ensure their future viability.

Inspired by The Wheel’s “Financing Your Future Good Practice Guide” this workshop will help participants understand their organisation’s current situation and funding needs, and analyse the ability to achieve your mission based on projected annual income for the foreseeable future. The second part of the workshop will explore some of the more innovative and effective approaches to income generation available to non-profits these days. The Wheel’s ‘Ten-Step Framework for Action’ will be made available to all participants at workshop.

Delivering this workshop is Hugh O’Reilly, Director of Business Development with The Wheel, a national representative body for the Community & Voluntary sector in Ireland, and who have a track record in delivering information and training supports to the sector for almost 20 years.

Places are free for this event and it is ideal for fundraisers, finance managers, senior staff, board and committee members of community-based, not-for-profit organisations, social enterprises, Companies Limited by Guarantee, and cooperatives, tasked with growing an organisation’s sustainability.

Advance booking is required and can be done through David O’Grady, Development Officer with Ballyhoura Development, Kilfinane, on tel. 063-91739, or by email
