CHALLENGE FUND ROUND #3 NOW OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS

Organisations supporting children and young people in the South West are invited to apply for Round #3 of RIO's Bridge Challenge Fund to secure match funding for projects.
 
The Challenge Fund is supported by RIO in its role as Arts Council England Bridge organisation for the south west and is designed to enhance cultural education for young people in the region. The funding pot will support organisations and commissioners who are unlocking income that has previously never been used for cultural education and activities for young people, by way of investment. Organisations can bid for match funding from RIO of between £20,000 and £75,000.

The deadline for applications to Round #3 of the Challenge Fund is 2nd May 2014, with a 4th Round to follow which will close on 4th September 2014.
 
RIO's Challenge Fund was launched in 2013 and has already seen 13 organisations from across the south west share a total investment pot of £270,000, subject to their match funding being secured.
