Ray Wind Funds actively engages with the communities it serves

The Ray Wind Funds began to award grants through the Community Foundation in 2018 and through the Local Initiatives Fund in January 2019.

The priorities for the grants were set in response to an initial public consultation carried out for us by CAN.

In June 2019 we held our first open public meeting to mark the first full grant year of the Funds. This was primarily to report to the communities our achievements during the year and to discuss our ambitions for the coming year.

In March this year another meeting was held to initiate our Community Network. The meeting was interactive, harvesting from the attendees their priorities as communities and their many ideas for the future shape of the Funds. The Community Network has its own Facebook group- follow this link and join the network to take part in shaping the future of your community. You can also reach the Ray Wind Funds Facebook page from here to keep up to date with our news.

As promised at the Community Network Meeting here is a report of the event, which has been read by every member of the Ray Wind Funds Board and will inform their planning for the future of the Funds
