Fundraising Grants

Within these pages I am now going to redirect you to a lot of potential Funding bodies. However, before you start looking through this list I suggest you go straight to the Landfill Communities Fund page by clicking here.

This is a very useful starting point. The Landfill Communities Fund are obliged to distribute funds continually.  In my experience churches and related projects fare well under this scheme.  You will probably be surprised to find how helpful they are and will be to your investigation for funds.




Both East Sussex County Council & West Sussex County Council provide information and advice. Contact them for external funding.

Councils for Voluntary Service: services offered by CVS’s can vary significantly, however they can offer free advice on funding applications, fundraising, and where to go for grants.

Local libraries: usually stock books such as the Directory of Grant Making Trusts and fundraising guides.

Fundraising consultants: but many bodies will not accept applications prepared by consultants, preferring the bid to be from the community or organisation planning the project.
