In October 2013, the Society’s members adopted a Statement on Political Engagement showing the Society’s willingness to engage with any organisation that shares its objectives and beliefs. To help bring the commitments in the Statement to life, the Society set up a Campaigns Fund which supports campaigning activity (primarily within the Society’s core trading areas) that promotes the aims of co-operation in the political arena and supports the objectives of the Society.
Applications are open
The Campaign Fund is open to applications from any organisations, including the Co-operative Party, whose aims reflect those of the Society and the co-operative movement. A set of procedures and criteria for the Fund have been approved and can be found below under the ‘Who can apply’ tab.
Please note this Fund will not support:
Charitable or welfare activities. Please see our Community Fund for such funding.
Applications for funding on behalf of individual candidates in local, national or European elections.
Organisations interested in applying for funding should contact the Secretariat Group in the first instance – 01926 516 385; firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’ve got the passion and commitment, our campaign fund could help you get your message to more people that matter. From more leaflets or social media activity, to better PR coverage, extra funding can make a big difference.
Who can apply?
We’ll consider applications from any campaign group that shares our values and is working to create positive change in the Midcounties region. If you think your organisation could be eligible for funding, then please contact the Secretariat group to discuss this further.
