Calling All English Orienteering Clubs!

FINAL CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

2019 is British Orienteering’s 'Year of the Volunteer' – Club Match Funding Applications are still open for a few more days only!  Don't delay in getting your application in as the deadline is fast approaching...this Friday 22 March 2019. 

British Orienteering is pleased to announce that the application process for clubs in England to apply for match funding to support their own volunteer project is open.

In support of British Orienteering’s 'Year of the Volunteer', clubs in England can apply to match their own investment in a volunteer project up to £250. For example, a club project that costs £500 can be split with £250 coming from the club and £250 from British Orienteering. Alternatively, the project may cost over £500 but the maximum that can be applied for from British Orienteering is still £250.

Clubs need to complete the application form outlining which category the funding would be used for and how the club intends to develop/ increase the number of volunteers as a result of it. The funding available is on a match funding basis and the club is expected to match or exceed the funding available from British Orienteering.

Projects can be big or small and cover many different areas including club nights, events, juniors, coaching and recruitment to name a few. To get involved, all clubs need to do is think of a project and download and complete the application form from www.britishorienteering.org.uk/matchfunding.

We are looking for clubs to try new and innovative ideas to get more people involved in volunteering for orienteering. The only required results are that the project must show an increase of members within the club volunteering and how this will be sustained in the future.

With the benefit of Sport England funding, we can match a club’s own investment up to the value of £250. Unfortunately, this offer is for English based clubs only as the funding is being provided by Sport England. However, we’ll be providing project ideas and news stories from across the network of clubs on the British Orienteering website which will be available for anyone to access.

Don't delay....if you haven't done so already, get your application downloaded and apply today.

Closing date for all applications is this Friday 22 March 2019.
