Please provide an Executive Summary for the project or work for which you are seeking funding. Consider this as your 'elevator pitch', and use it to make a high-level, succinct but convincing case for support.

  • How the project fits as many as possible of the programme criteria, which are that the work, should, ideally:

 

a) Significantly extend your organisation’s reach to a greater number of people and/or over a wider geographical area, and increase the scope of your work

b) Make a vital difference in enabling your organisation to realise its overall vision and strategic aims

c) Lead to a significant step-change or growth for your organisation – numerically and spiritually

d) Benefit not only your immediate organisation but other similar organisations and/or the wider community as well

 

  • What you are asking for money for, what need you are addressing, what the impact of your project will be? What will success look like?

 

Please note: you will be able to say more about these areas in the next section, so details here can be brief.
