FIS and Bac's Partnership Press Release
BACS: Business and Community Shares is pleased to
announce a strategic partnership with the Funding
Information Service to deliver accessible
information on a wider platform for community organisations and individuals for funding and other services.
The Funding Information Service (FIS) is a long established national organisation that provides services to a diverse sector covering groups and organisations involved in sport, recreation, arts, faith, political, environment, conservation, education, health, employment, social and welfare activities. FIS works with government, local government and education providers to ensure that those groups, organisations and individuals can easily access information about the best sources of funding to suit their needs. The three most popular services are FundView for community organisations seeking funding, BreakOut which helps find scholarships and funds supporting personal and individual development and, Corporate Citizens which holds information on corporate and business philanthropic and donation programmes.
BACS is a recently launched hub of corporate social responsibility that provides a platform for businesses, community organisations and facilitators to share information and news. BACS already has over sixty members and partners that share resources, skills and wisdom to create engagement partnerships. BACS founder Julie Donvin-Irons said she was “very pleased to be working more closely with FIS as a quality provider of funding information, by partnering and sharing resources we are making this sector stronger to obtain the positive results we all want to see in New Zealand.”
