Speaker: Caroline Underwood OBE, CEO Philanthropy Company, in collaboration with Ecclesiastical Insurance.

Preparation: No advance preparation is needed; however, you can submit your questions in advance if you wish.

Giving top tips, practical advice and useful examples, the key questions answered in this webinar will include:

  • What do grant funders support?
  • How do I create a strong grant application?
  • Where do I look for funding and how do I organise my research?
  • How do I organise the timing of my project and grant application?
  • Who should I involve in the process of writing a grant application?

Whatever the level of fundraising experience or knowledge within your church, this webinar will help you to build confidence and identify key steps that you can take when applying for grant funding.

It will explore where trusts, foundations, and other grant funders are focusing their support in light of the impact of COVID-19. Over the course of the seminar it will also look at what churches can do to make their applications stand out - topics will include best approaches to writing grant applications, and how to research grant funders.
