Webinar: Fundraising in Sport for Development: Grant funding
Following the release of the second Fundraising in Sport for Development, State of the Sector Report, which benchmarks fundraising performance in sport for development globally and sets out to inform the future of fundraising in the sector, Oaks Consultancy launched another series of webinars to discuss the key findings and share insights from some of the leading voices in the sector.
The theme for this first event was be grant funding: do we need to/how do we reduce the sector’s overreliance on grants from trusts and foundations?
Last year, a significant 56% of respondents reported that grants from trusts, foundations and institutions made up a substantial proportion of their income. Luke Southall, Managing Director at Oaks Consultancy, hosted a panel discussion with leading voices in the sector to discuss this reliance on grant funding, and how organisations might approach income diversification moving forward.
The speakers on this panel were:
- David Given-Sjolander from the Swedish Postcode Lottery Foundation. As Project Manager and Strategic Lead: Sport for Social Change, David has partnered with over 100 organisations and developed the Foundation’s strategy on the use of sport for sustainable development
- Keri Mcdonald from TAFISA. Keri has over 15 years of experience working within the public, not for profit and educational sectors in the UK and Australia to increase sport and physical activity opportunities for all citizens, with an emphasis on marginalised and vulnerable groups.
