About the Event
For the first session this week we will be joined by Lucy Stone who will be leading a Q&A on CRF funding and how to make a successful application.
Lucy Stone has 20 years’ experience in the charity sector, predominantly in the arts, culture, education and social isolation sectors in the South East. As a fundraiser in the last few years she has supported a diverse range of charities from a start-up with a £50,000 turnover to a 120 year old charity with £8 million turnover. Her specialisms are in Trust and Foundation fundraising (prospecting, bid writing and relationship management) and income diversification.
For the 2020 rounds of CRF Lucy brought together and led a team of 15 fundraisers to support 296 organisations to successfully apply to the Arts Council England Culture Recovery Fund raising £56.2 million. She worked with Music venue Trust, Association of Independent Festival, Production Services Association, The UK Live Music Group, Manchester City Council and Liverpool Sound City to support their memberships in applying for funding with webinars, guidance notes and bid reviews. For the bids the team reviewed the success rate was increased from 70% to 85%.
