Writing an Emergency Funding Bid

Tuesday 21 April, 10.30am-11.30am

Are you a non NPO organisation considering applying for one of the Emergency Funding streams in response to Covid-19?

Join the WMMD team and Jenni Waugh for a short webinar outlining the options available and providing top tips on writing funding applications.

Jenni is an experienced bid writer and evaluator who has worked with museums and heritage organisations across the region on briefs for a variety of funders, including NLHF, ACE and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.

As follow up support we will be offering a limited number of bookable slots to either schedule a phone call with Jenni to discuss a particular application, or to have her cast her expert eye over your application.

This webinar is aimed at small organisations who are navigating the funding streams available and may have limited bid writing experience.
