Investment Readiness Services
CAF Venturesome aim to provide social enterprises and charities with the affordable, repayable finance they need to sustain and grow their social impact.
Eastside People work with CAF Venturesome to provide services to help charities, social enterprises and other non-profit organisations to be ready to seek investment.
We have worked with them on 13 projects helping organisations with things like financial modelling, business planning, governance and articulating social value to help them to try to access loan finance.
Working alongside Eastside People’s specialist consultants and our close working relationship with CAF gives organisations the knowledge, skills and capacity they need to be successful in this growing area of charitable finance.
Read the SWIM (Support when it Matters) Case Study about how we worked together on an investment readiness project which resulted in a £110,000 blended finance package from CAF Venturesome made up of a £77,000 loan and £33,000 grant.
Watch our joint webinar with CAF Venturesome, Barrow Cadbury Trust and SWIM for an overview of social investment for social sector organisations. The recording and slides will be useful to anyone in the social sector who wants to understand more about this area and/or thinks it could be an option for their organisation.
