The Care-full Closures Fund
Stewarding Loss has announced a new pilot fund: The Care-full Closures Fund. This fund will deliver ground-breaking support to four organisations to support them to consider and design an organisational closure or merger.
This fund is open to non-profit organisations of any size who are considering closure and are wanting to explore their options carefully, intentionally and with a design-led approach. This means an organisation in its current form is considering coming to an end, either through merging with another or closing and handing over services.
Four organisations will receive paid for time with experienced consultants, along with up to £4,000 to fund staff time and associated costs.
If you think your organisation would benefit from dedicated support to consider closure, read the full guidance and complete the online form. The closing date for expressions of interest is 14 June 2021 for work to begin in September 2021.
