Edge Fund have sent out the appeal below. We facilitated their meetings when they were setting up, and have kept up with the valuable work they have funded ever since, so please take a look and consider if you can help.
We need to ask for your help! Our annual income has fallen from over £220,000 in our first year to less than £50,000 in our last financial year. At the moment we only have enough money to last for around another year. We know there is a huge demand for our funding, because we receive hundreds of applications every funding round and we want to continue for as long as we are needed.
For Edge Fund to to continue its work we need 100 people to sign up to monthly direct debits. We know that’s a lot to ask, but if the likes of Oxfam and Amnesty can raise millions a year from individuals, there is no reason we can’t reach our goal. We’re starting with a target of 100 monthly donors by 31st March so please consider donating, however small or large: www.edgefund.org.uk/donate
