There are no short cuts! Like everyone else has said, make sure you meet the criteria, answer every question and make sure that everything is exactly as requested. That includes sending in what they ask for – make sure it is that – complete and no extras unless they say so. Otherwise, they do have large receptacles just next to their desk and the application that you have spent hours on, will go straight into it without being read. Every funder will tell you that and it is the starting point in their sorting application
Perfect- great advice Duncan!
Have you much experience getting funds for your project in other ways? Fundraising, sponsorship for donations, events etc.? Would love to hear about them![/quote]
We mainly use Funders, but got goods and cash from our own Church and also from others including the staff at our Council Offices, specifically to enable us to give Christmas packs to around 50 of our ‘clients’
