Rethinking Reserves

Flanders Moss nature reserve
Monday 10 May 2021 - 14:00 to 15:00

Online -  Zoom 


The pandemic has shone a light on the importance of reserves (for charities and voluntary sector organisations generally): how important they are for organisations gearing up to meet need or to remain resilient during a crisis, yet how little reserves many have, and how some have been reluctant to use them.

Join SCVO for this one-hour event as they begin a conversation within the sector on this important topic.

Chaired by Joanne McCreadie, Chief Executive, The Gannochy Trust and bringing together funders, voluntary sector organisations and other stakeholders, the event aims to:

  • demystify reserves, challenge assumptions and understand better what they are and what they are for
  • surface some of the barriers, dilemmas and challenges that prevent us making reserves work better and begin thinking about what could help to shift them.

This online event is for anyone interested in a dynamic and resilient voluntary sector, including trustees and staff of organisations involved in management, fundraising and strategy, as well as funders and commissioners.
