Grants from trusts and foundations

Make an application for a grant or fundraising support from trusts, foundations and National Lottery funders

Trusts and foundations can be a fantastic source of funding for all sorts of projects.

Whether you want to give your girls access to new outdoor adventures, or simply need to replace some guiding equipment, it’s likely there’s a trust or foundation you can apply to for support.

Working with trusts and foundations is a slightly more formal method of fundraising – but it doesn’t have to be daunting. You’ll just need to make sure that you have a specific project to fund, and that your application is well-researched, well-written and carefully targeted.
