  • Understand the application process
  • Get some tips about how to maximise your success
  • Recognise the importance of evaluating and reporting on your success

Funding Surgeries

If you have already attended a Funding Tuesday training, but  need a bit more guidance then please contact us to arrange a forty five minute appointment.  This is an opportunity to review your organisation’s funding portfolio, with sustainability in mind. Your organisation might wish to increase its income with funding and fundraising options or receive support to develop and structure your future funding applications. These are done by an experienced fundraising professional and can be arranged as face to face or via Zoom.   If you’d like to arrange a surgery, or just have a question, then please contact us on 0141 332 2444 or cld@gcvs.org.uk.
