Friends of Unscene Suffolk is our brand new supporter scheme, launched at our 5th birthday party in 2018.
What is Friends of Unscene Suffolk?
We’re looking for Friends who we can rely on for a regular monthly donation of any amount.
How much do I have to give?
Your donation could be any amount from £2 to £200 – the important thing is that it’s regular and consistent.
Why are regular donations important?
Unscene Suffolk receives no regular or statutory funding and relies on grants, donations, ticket sales and small member contributions to continue our work.
Regular donations are doubly valuable because:
- they provide income security which allows us to plan ahead, while the majority of our income (grants, ticket sales and one-off donations) can be difficult to predict. This means we can make our projects more ambitious and sustainable.
- confirmed regular income acts as ‘match funding’ for grant applications and demonstrates to funders that our work has the support of a wider community, and the stability to ensure we will achieve our aims. Your £5 per month might help us to secure £5000 in additional funding!
