Engaging people in your worthy cause can be hard work. Getting guests, visitors, delegates and attendees to your event, function, gathering or venue is always hard work. But getting the most from them once they are there should not be hard work too! And it no longer is, thanks to DONATE™.
As we know, the Third Sector is diverse and includes large multi-million pound national charitable organisations as well as small self-funded groups and organisations. It is because of this diversity that the Chamber has had some anomalies in applying their fee structure, which is based on number of paid employees.
Community Action Wirral has been working in partnership with Wirral Chamber to agree a fee structure that takes the needs of the sector into account. After exploring several models, we have decided that a generous discount would be the best outcome. This is less complicated than applying a ‘pick and mix’ of services and benefits that may or may not be useful. This way, the sector can benefit from the whole package that membership offers, even if not all services are utilised.
Third Sector members will therefore receive a 50% discount off their annual Chamber membership effective 1st March 2017.

Try for Change aims to help people reach their goals and fulfil their potential, whilst delivering long-term benefits to the wider community. Proposals to the large grants programme must demonstrate wider social outcomes and not just focus on increasing participation in rugby. Proposals must , therefore, ork towards at least one of the following Try for Change outcomes:
1. Increase community cohesion or social integration
2. Improve educational attainment
3. Increase employability
4. Reduce involvement in gangs and/or reduce the risk of re-offending
5. Improve mental and physical health
Our financial giving is aimed at supporting projects, activities and organisations that have charitable aims and will be of real direct benefit to families. The support we provide should reach charities and organisations delivering work which aligns with our priorities and has a direct and tangible social impact on families.
We will support organisations that focus on solving significant social issues, as defined through Families Matter.
The aim of the trustees is to support charities in the fields of medical research, education and the arts. In addition, social welfare is supported, especially work known to the trustees. If charities work locally, priority is given to those in Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire. We support registered charities, including Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs) and those correctly registered as charities in their own countries.
