Generating Income

To grow your organisation and run services you are going to need to consider how you generate income.  You can do this through:

  • Fundraising in your community
  • Applying for grants
  • Bidding for contracts
  • Trading with the public

Ideally you want to try to think about having a mix of funding streams.  We can help you to achieve this through supporting you in:

  • Identifying and applying for funding
  • Fundraising legally
  • Claiming Gift Aid
  • Running lotteries and raffles
  • Identifying contract opportunities
  • Submitting a tender
  • Developing partnerships
  • Registering for VAT
  • Considering a "trading subsidiary" (a separate body that trades and passes profit to you)

For more detail about how we can help you generate income, see pages 13-15 of our services guide.
