Deadline 28th October
NCVO are delighted to be launching the Winifred Tumim Memorial Fund for innovation in charity governance. This new fund is replacing the NCVO governance award which we feel has been superseded by the excellent charity governance awards.
The new fund has been established in honour of the work done by Lady Winifred Tumim, chair of NCVO from 1996–2001, to improve the quality of charity governance.
A grant of £1000 will be awarded for work which supports innovation in good governance, for example:
- trialling and testing a new approach
- developing a tool for NCVO which can be used to support good governance
- undertaking some thought leadership work.
Entries are welcome from organisations and individuals. In making the grant, particular attention will be paid to how any output supports the adoption of the Charity Governance Code and uses new or innovation approaches to tackle common challenges.
The successful applicant will be asked to produce an output for NCVO – this may be a practical tool, guidance, blog or short report into the lessons from their work
