Grants and Funding options
As well as traditional fundraising events and activities, there are an increasing number of different options for charity, voluntary and community organisations to raise funds for their cause.
If you are from a group in the borough of Basingstoke & Deane, or looking to set up a group here, you can make an appointment to come into The Orchard and we will use our database subscriptions to help you uncover funding sources – click here to book an appointment.
Having an internet presence allows organisations to optimize fundraising through a variety of online means.
- Online donation sites allow your supporters to contribute directly to your cause while No Cost donation sites enables individuals to support you by simply shopping or searching online.
- If your organisation has a Facebook presence you might consider their Charitable Giving Tools, which allow their users to use the site to raise money for their causes.
- Local causes should also consider approaching local businesses, who often run a variety of schemes such as employee match funding schemes, sponsorship or donations of goods or services.
- Other fundraising options available are mobile giving and crowdfunding.
