Finding Funding

Funding Advice and Support from MSVA

Voluntary and community organisations constantly need to seek new sources of funding so that they can meet the needs of the people they support.

Our free Finding Funding service helps you through the funding options so that your fundraising events are successful and your funding bids bring in the sums you need.

We guide you through the maze of funding information and give you ideas for fundraising events, as well as helping you identify, apply for and manage funding from charitable trusts, local authorities and the business sector.

We can help you:

  • Identify the right funding for your project
  • Plan and cost your project ready for funding applications
  • Look over your funding bid as a ‘critical friend’
  • Monitor and evaluate the success of your project
  • Develop a fundraising strategy
