IdeasTap are looking for a panel of our members to lead the new Top Up Fund. This pilot fund will be awarding £500 to 20 projects, and is the first-ever Ideas Fund that will be judged solely by IdeasTap members.


We're looking for a panel of members that will be responsible for making decisions on the criteria for applications, as well as the projects they wish to award. This is YOUR chance to decide which projects we should be funding.


The panel will be expected meet at the IdeasTap office in London for an initial briefing on Saturday 19 February and then to judge the applications at the end of March (date TBC). Between these meetings, it will be the responsibility of the panel to contact and shortlist applications; being on the panel will involve a lot of independent work, so we're looking for self-motivated, committed individuals who work well in a team. Panellists will be paid for their time.


We're looking for people who...

Have a keen interest in working as part of a team to select and monitor a range of projects

Have a keen interest in the arts

Are experienced in running projects/volunteering/extracurricular activities/are on a board or committee – to demonstrate their commitment, reliability and organisation skills

Are IdeasTap members

Represent diverse disciplines (among the panel)
