Where can you find information about trusts and foundations in the UK and overseas?
What key internal information do you need to know?
You need to know (or know where to find):
Core Case for Support (One Voice)
What you want / when you want it
How you are going to get it – strategy
Your organisational projects: costs, timings, outputs, outcomes, benefits to donor, how will you measure your success?
Check and double check your eligibility!
DSC Research 2008/2009 – average 36% applications ineligible.
If each application took 10 mins (if only!) – equates to seven years wasted effort
Developing your application:
What do funders want to know?
How should you respond to these?
“ Once you’ve recruited a donor, you should treat them as if they’re going to be partners with you for life - and donations are milestones on the journey with them”
Giles Pegram – Director of Fundraising NSPCC
