There are range of grants available to help fund your project. 

Please check carefully the published guidelines and criteria before applying for funding, making note of the timeframe for deadlines and decisions, and procedure for the release of funds. It is often helpful to get in touch with funders to discuss your project at an early stage.

Grants are just one way to raise money and should be part of a carefully planned fundraising strategy.  See the fundraising page for more  information. 

To search for grants, take a look at your local authority website as it might subscribe to a national database which you can access for free.  South Cambridgeshire, for instance, has GrantGrabber. Other useful websites include:

Churches in Norfolk might find the Diocese of Norwich’s Grant Finder useful.

For lists of grants specifically for building related projects including maintenance, repairs, reordering, facilities, organs, bells, stained glass and wall paintings, please contact Sue Dickinson or Holly Isted.
