Welcome to Church Grants. This site is designed specifically to support people with a lot, a little or no expertise in fundraising who need to raise money for their Church or Christian organisation.
Our goal is to save you time - both the time spent searching online for funders and time spent applying to funders that aren't suitable for your project. We want you to raise more funding and to diversify your income streams beyond the usual big names. Our search engine is indexes both national and local funding opportunities.
We have indexed hundreds of UK and US trusts and foundations that you won't find anywhere else, all of which have funded church or Christian projects before. The emphasis is on local funders, because the chances of success are much higher, but we include all the major national funders, including the Lottery.
This site contains information about funders for listed and unlisted buildings, and social outreach and community projects.
The team behind it are experienced church fundraisers. We are people who love churches, and who want to support more people to raise the money they need.
The site is designed to be very straightforward to use. Once you have subscribed tick the boxes that apply to your project, and as you do so, the site will generate the results on the right hand side of your screen. You can search as many times as you like, and your searches are saved so you can refer back to them.
The funders are arranged by Church of England Diocese boundaries. The only exception to this is London, where the results are subdivided by London Borough, because London is a big place and there are a lot of funders with very tight geographical restrictions.
If you are not familiar with them, you can download a map of Church of England and Church of Wales Dioceses or use our postcode search function. If you don't know what diocese you are in, we do!
We would love to hear how you found the Church Grants site and whether it helped you raise funding for your church or organisation.
