Impact Funding Partners Brand and Strategy Launch
Impact Funding Partners was launched at The Hub in Edinburgh, as the new brand for the Voluntary Action Fund. They also launched their new strategy, “Let’s Create a Fairer Future”.
Over 140 guests joined to celebrate the impact of their work with third sector projects across Scotland. Through music, song, circus and powerful stories, the performers and speakers demonstrated not only the tough reality of life for many people, but how they make a difference to individuals and communities.
They were thrilled to end the event with a short film from the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon in support of their work with the Scottish Government and their new brand and strategy.
To round off the launch they looked back over the last 36 years to remember the big changes in the world. They commissioned Heart and Sound, a youth work and creative media charity from Dunfermline to produce a film and set it to the music of the time. Finishing off the day with the film and a silent disco.
Keith Wimbles, Chief Executive said “We have received many positive messages from our partners and friends about the launch and our new priorities, which we really appreciate.
This is certainly a very exciting time for Impact Funding Partners. We are a fund manager with knowledge, expertise and networks and work with those who want to invest in change, and those who need funding to achieve it. We will continue to develop, manage and evaluate funding for the public, private and third sectors. However, we intend to build on our success and extend our partnership with donors, the private sector and foundations to create a fairer future for everyone.”
