Catalyst heritage: Building fundraising capacity
The Catalyst small grants programme is open to organisations and partnerships who look after or engage people with heritage. Small grants of £3,000 to £10,000 are now available.
Through this programme, we want to support organisations that look after or engage people with heritage to access funding from private sources, such as individual and corporate donors, trusts and foundations, and to diversify their income sources (this may also include in-kind donations, or income from trading).
You will need to demonstrate that a significant proportion of your organisations work aims to look after or engage people with heritage, and that you have a clear need to build your fundraising capacity.
If you would like to make an application, you can express your interest online. We will let you know if your application is suitable for this programme and you can then decide whether to go ahead. The closing date is the 16th of August 2013.
