Raising money for your group can feel like an endless task. However, raising money is always more successful if you know what you are raising the money for, and have a clear idea of how much you need.
Plan your fundraising by making decisions in your group about what you actually want to do, and then work out how much these activities will cost. This will help you to decide how best to raise the money, and it will also mean that you don’t spend time trying to raise money that you don’t really need.
We have compiled lists of funders that are useful for community groups in Brighton & Hove. Many also fund organisations in other areas.
We also have a subscription to Trustfunding.org.uk. This is a database of UK trusts, with information about the kinds of things they fund and how to apply. If you are a Sussex based community group you are welcome to use it at the Resource Centre – just contact us to book a time to come in. (We will not charge you to use the database, but do charge a small amount for computer use).
We don’t usually add very short term or one-off grant pots to our Favourite Funders. We post these in our Funding News section instead. Have a look there if you are looking for small bits of funding in Brighton and Hove.
