Liverpool - Garfield Western Foundation Funding Masterclass

Tuesday 20th August 2019

The Garfield Weston Foundation is a family-founded, charitable grant-making foundation, which supports a wide range of causes across the UK; donating over £62 million annually. Almost 2,000 charities across the UK benefit each year from grants made by the Foundation, ranging from small community and volunteer projects to large national organisations whose work focuses upon: the arts, education, youth, health, museums and heritage, community, environment, faith, and welfare.

Despite this range, the common theme is that the charities demonstrate they are meeting a need effectively - with clear outcomes and benefits, good leadership, sensible business plans, and a commitment to excellence.

The Foundation makes grants based upon the income of your organisation. Project and unrestricted revenue grants can be awarded at a level usually around 10-20% of your income, whilst awards for capital projects are normally awarded at 10% of the capital cost.
This course will guide you through the application process, taking into account the priorities of the Foundation under each of the Foundation’s priority areas, and will give you effective bid writing tips to develop a strong case for your project.

In particular, you will:
• Understand the principles and processes to access Garfield Weston funding
• Learn methods to develop and present your project, taking into consideration the Foundation’s key priority areas
• Learn about evidencing need and developing your project outcomes and impact
• Explore methods to develop your project budget
• Explore techniques for writing high quality funding applications

This course is aimed at anyone who has already been involved in writing applications to small/medium charitable trusts but is now looking to develop revenue bids focused under the Foundation’s key priority areas.

Please note, organisations applying to the Foundation need to be able to demonstrate that they are registered charities. CIC’s and social enterprises are not eligible for funding from the Foundation.

For those new to project development and bid writing, we would recommend attending our ‘Introduction to Fundraising’ in January as a first step.

All of our funder specific masterclasses have been designed using our in-house experience of working with applicants to prepare and submit successful bids to each funder. This knowledge and experience helped us to secure over £5m of funding for community projects in 2018/19. Where course content includes specific input from the funder it will be explicitly referenced in the course description.
