Adult friend funder
We are applying to AN Other fund for £1000 to cover the costs of hiring a sports hall for weekly activities, plus three swimming sessions and one Christmas ice skating session.We will provide feedback forms after every activity.We will get our accounts externally examined at the end of the year.Since setting up our bank account in August, we have received £47 in donations from supporters.You can do it on an ongoing basis – for example, by having a discussion at a committee meeting about how things are going.You can also do it at the end of the project, by looking back and thinking about what went well and what you would improve next time.Kids Club has made him much happier and this has helped his confidence and he is now even enjoying school more.” We want to provide a continuous experience for the families involved, and get more people involved.
Our weekly sessions have become very important to those involved.
Send this to them as soon as possible, and make sure you meet any deadlines they set for you.
Failure to do so could mean you don’t get the grant after all. Make sure you have a system for monitoring, and start this as soon as your project or activities begin.
If a funder has a standard application form, use it. We have information on Budgets for community groups, Constitutions and several information sheets on looking after your group’s money and getting your accounts independently examined.
Below is an example of a letter of application to a funder.
