If you feel your organisation is not quite ready for investment, PICNIC is an approved Access Point for the Reach Fund, which is a grant programme offering eligible organisations such as charities and social enterprises up to £15,000 to prepare to become “investment ready”.
Grants from the Reach Fund provide that little extra support so you can engage with experts to develop a business plan that factors in:
- resources, leadership and risk planning;
- financial projections that prove you can sustain investment;
- a strong governance structure that provides oversight; and
- clear social and/or environmental impact goals.
To apply to the Reach Fund, your organisation must meet our Eligibility Criteria.
