The Racing Foundation extends membership funding to National Council for Voluntary Organisations

Tuesday, 20 April 2021

The Racing Foundation extends racing charity membership funding to National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NVCO) until May 2022.


Since 2017 the Racing Foundation has negotiated and funded group NVCO membership, providing racing charities with access to a large variety of free and discounted resources and support including advice on volunteer management, governance, strategy, Trustee training, charity law, funding, giving and philanthropy and welfare reform. 

 

In 2020, charities were asked for feedback on the membership and usage over the past 3 years, and the responses included:

 

“We have used the NCVO resources to help develop community organisations and committees as well as update policies and procedures. This is a very useful tool and something we are grateful to continue with.”

 

“We find the site very useful and are now using it to help us with our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion action plan.”

 

“We have benefitted from this membership across our work, both in terms of resources and attending events. We are grateful for the continued support.”

 

The Racing Foundation currently funds the NVCO membership of 20 racing charities and welcomes new members to the group. If you are part of a racing charity that you believe could benefit, please email Tansy Challis on tansy.challis@racingfoundation.co.uk.
