The Self-Funding Portal provided by Hunts Forum and partners under the Support Cambridgeshire banner has passed the half-million mark in funds raised by Cambridgeshire community organisations.
Over the past 12 months, the Portal has been visited on 5,860 occasions with 506 new registered organisations using the search facility and 650 repeat visitors. The top 5 search areas continue to be Youth engagement, Older people, Education, Disability and Volunteering.
Anyone can create a free account and perform their own searches to find funders for their organisation, project type, area of work and various other criteria. Simply click here to start your journey. You can use the Portal repeatedly without cost: All we ask is that when you receive an electronic questionnaire about how good or bad the site is you provide your honest opinion. This feedback helps us to improve the site, making it easier for more groups or organisations to use the service.
Here is what some users have said this year:
SC4C is incredibly easy to navigate. Its a really useful resource for community organisations.
We raised 50K off the back of a SC4C search: Its so simple and easy to use.
I use SC4C every week when searching for funds. If you use it in conjunction with the funding alerts it really does help.
