Raising funds for things can seem difficult, but we’re here to help. God is the One who owns the cattle on a thousand hills (Ps 50:10) and He is so very generous in all He gives us to look after for him.
1. Consider saving up bit by bit
£195 for full may seem like a lot of money, but start saving one coffee per week, from when booking opens and you’ll have 31 x £3 = £93
Add on the cost of going to a gig, the cinema or on connecting back with your friends on campus anyway, and you’ll start to get close. But for those who are still struggling:
2. Ask your Student Union
Do you know that some Christian Unions get Student Union funding for student training events? We’ll be able to have a short letter from us that you can adapt to give to your Student Union to let them know why you’re applying for so much funding. All you’ll need to find out is whether you can apply for it through this year’s funding system or whether it has to be through next year’s CU budget. Come back to this page soon to get a download or contact your local staffworker to ask more.
3. Ask your church
Many churches and church leaders understand how significant uniting together at the start of the year and receiving top notch training is. We’ve already been spreading word to them about this, so hopefully by the time you mention it, they’ll have some idea already. None–the–less, we’ll have a short letter that you can adapt that explains more to them on what Equip is.
4. Apply to our fund for financially needy students
We’ll have a very limited number of reduced price student places for those with genuine needs. Ask us for an application form. firstname.lastname@example.org
