There are thousands of organisations that give grants to voluntary groups for a wide range of activities. Each of them has their own criteria and expectations of your organisation.
Designing a Fundable Project
The first stage in applying for funding is being really clear about what it is that you are applying to get funding for. What do you want to do, what are your costs, what results will you get and what impact will they have on the local community.
Involving us at this stage means we can help you to design a project that will stand the best chance of being funded.
Identifying Potential Funders
Once you've designed your project you need to identify the funder or funders that are appropriate to apply to. For small projects you may only want to apply to one or two funders for all of the costs. For larger projects you may want or need more funders.
CVS Inverclyde keeps a database of over 2,500 funders that may be of use to you. From that database we can pull out the funders that would be good for you to apply to.
Applying for Funding
Pulling together everything you need for your funding application can be daunting. But with a little help from CVS Inverclyde you should be able to achieve it. We can take you through the process; outlining the tasks that you will need to do and helping you with forms that need filled in.
Alternatively if you would like us to prepare your application for you we can do that.
