Following the launch of our new brand and strategy in February, Impact Funding Partners (formerly Voluntary Action Fund) is enthusiastic and passionate about this new chapter in our history.
With a track record of 36 years managing funds on behalf of the public sector and donors, and distributing £140 million across Scotland, we know a thing or two about creating impact through grants.
We now want to build on our success by expanding our relationship with businesses and donors to create a fairer future for everyone.
Impact Funding Partners is committed to maintaining a diverse Board that reflects the strengths of the people and communities of Scotland. We welcome applications from anyone who is passionate about making a difference in communities, and particularly from people from under-represented groups on charity boards in Scotland, such as women, disabled people, people from ethnic minority communities and people aged under 50.
We would particularly welcome applications from people with experience in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Human Rights, Marketing, Business Development, Philanthropy and the Private Sector.
