Weʼre raising £10,000 to fund the British Association for Victorian Studies (BAVS) hardship bursaries
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In the past few weeks, the BAVS committee have been working hard behind the scenes to implement financial support for those members adversely affected by COVID. Using the BAVS emergency reserve fund, the first stage of this will be 5 x £400 hardship bursaries targeted at those struggling to cover the cost of the most basic needs as a result of financial hardship (such as those on casual/temporary contracts who have not been eligible for government assistance and those who have had to significantly reduce their paid work due to childcare responsibilities). However, we know that this is only a drop in the ocean and there is much more to do. Therefore, as well as looking to raise funds elsewhere, we are asking for your help. BAVS aims to raise at least £10,000 in the coming months to support a further 25 applications. A gift of £5, £10, £25, £50, £100, £200, or, if you can, fully funding a £400 bursary will make a huge difference to those struggling. Please give if you can.
