The Children’s Fire Movement is being driven by passionate and dedicated individuals who give of their time for the promotion, maintenance and implementation of what lies at the heart of this cause – to safeguard our future generations. This can be a movement of significance, with real tried and tested methods for creating sustainable change in both our selves and our communities.
How we are receiving donations
We are an official non-profit organisation (a CIC or Community Interest Company) and are now able to receive donations via our own verified PayPal account. Each time you donate to a CFM fund, or project, a corresponding id tag is automatically included with the transaction – this means that we can keep tabs on precisely where the money should go.
News Update: CFM Bank Account now up and running
The Maintenance Fund
These resources will go towards the general maintenance and running costs of the CFM – without them we cannot continue to exist. Examples of current items that require funding are:
- Ongoing development of this public website (and associated running costs of the website such as server hire, software and hardware [the laptop being used to develop this site is only just managing to keep limping along!!]).
- Crazily, we still do not have any stationary such as business cards, letter heads etc – though in fairness, we’re only now in need of these!
- Promotional materials for attending events such as festivals and promo workshops.
- Merchandising – at the top of this list are organic t-shirts, recycled wrist bands and eco car stickers.
- Materials and expenses associated with promoting and running our Community Learning Journey programmes.
- The list goes on…
The Bursary Fund
Our Bursary fund is there to assist individuals, and community groups in raising funds to support their process of coming into alignment with the principles of the Children’s Fire. This may go towards covering expenses such as course fees, individual tuition and mentoring, media costs etc.
This was a short-term fund established to raise resources for a specific, internal staff-training programme. The programme was designed to give individuals a deeper insight into, and experience of, the design and choreography of the system that the Children’s Fire is a part of.
The total amount required went up slightly due to flight prices.
We have reached our target and so the BlackLodge fund is now closed!! Thank you so much to all who have contributed, and not just financially – your words of kind support have been invaluable.
