We are very pleased to announce that we, Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde CVS have retained our Grantfinder license for 2016-17.
We have done this because our ongoing Sector Survey shows that finding funding remains the primary concern of Third Sector organisations on the Fylde Coast. 81% of respondents say that they have seen growing demand over the last 12 months, and 82% expect to see this growth in demand continue. 64% think that finding funding to meet this demand will be their primary challenge over the next 12 months.
Grantfinder is an essential tool for fundraising, listing over 8,000 funders, searchable by type of organisation, planned activity, expenditure and other keywords to ensure that we find exactly the right source of funding to fit your project. Sources of grants listed range from national and international funders such as the Lottery and European Union, to charitable trusts with specialised areas of focus.
CVS staff have long experience of using Grantfinder, and will be able to assist you in identifying grants most suitable for your project. You’ll receive a detailed list of potential funders, with contact details, their area of focus, criteria, maximum and minimum amounts and more. In the last three months alone we’ve helped organisations seeking over £300,000 of funding.
Please note that we are the only organisation in the three districts of Blackpool Wyre and Fylde to hold the key to this invaluable funding tool.
