As you may be aware, iT4Communities has been having some funding problems. We lost our government funding when Capacity Builders decided that national programmes should not support front line voluntary organisations directly. Now you and I know that services and systems like iT4C can only sensibly operate on a national scale (if not an international one?) and that we and you do serve front line voluntary organisations and charities directly. But that's water under the bridge now.
Right now, we've been short listed in a competition to win up to £20,000 of funding from MoneySavingExpert.com. We've done incredibly well to get this far - there were over 600 entries and we're in the final twelve. We need you to vote for us Money Saving Expert: Consumer Revenge - Credit Cards, Shopping, Bank Charges, Cheap Flights and more
now! The four charities with the most votes when the poll closes on Tuesday 22nd July will become MoneySavingExpert's chosen charities for the year.
We have helped a lot of the most popular charities mentioned MoneySavingExpert's short list (34 projects for the current top 5 in the poll and their associates) but we serve you and them rather than the public directly so we are not as well known as the other short listed charities in the MoneySavingExpert list.
If every one of our 5000+ volunteers voted for us we'd have a great chance of being in the top four. So please go to Money Saving Expert: Consumer Revenge - Credit Cards, Shopping, Bank Charges, Cheap Flights and more
to vote for us NOW! No automation please, I know that it's a temptation if you know how but please resist it! On the other hand, do encourage your friends and colleagues to vote for us by passing this message on.
And if we win? We'll use the funding to define more projects, help more projects to completion and encourage more volunteering to help voluntary organisations with their IT needs. So everybody benefits!
We are still, of course, hunting for corporate sponsorship too so please get in touch if you can help here - or know someone who can. Leads are mostly what we need. We'll follow up.
