Reporting to funders

  • Designing and using questionnaires

    Using questionnaires and surveys to find out what people think

  • Examination of accounts

    Getting your group’s accounts independently¬†examined: what it means, why you might want to do it, and how to go about it.

  • Money in Mind Accounts System

    Under our Money in Mind project, we developed two accounts systems designed specifically for community and voluntary groups. You will need access to Microsoft Excel to use them.

  • Monitoring and Evaluation

    Information to help your community group think about what you are aiming to achieve, how to find out if you are succeeding, and how to demonstrate to the outside world that what you are doing is useful.

  • Reporting to a funder

    When you receive a small grant, the organisation that gives you the grant will usually ask you to send them some information at the end of the project. Some funders provide a form for you to fill in. Others just ask you to write a short report and send it to them. This information sheet is mainly focused on writing an evaluation report from scratch, but you may also find it useful when thinking about how to fill in an evaluation form.

  • Your group's money

    Information and tips to help your whole committee take responsibility for looking after your group’s money.
