Your funding criteria request match funding but what counts a match funding?
We ideally don’t want to be covering the full cost of the project you are applying for, applications which are able to show that a proportion of the funding is being paid from other sources will score higher.
In terms as what might count as match funding:
- Funding contribution to the project from the applicants own funds
- Funding obtained by other funding sources e.g. other funding grants or charitable donation from another organisation
- In kind (non-cash) funding of free goods or services such as staff and volunteer time (using time that someone works on the project as match funding). To do this you will need to include a full description of the work that is expected to be carried out and the cost of this time.
Not all funding for intended project has yet been secured. Can I still apply for this fund?
No. we will need evidence that all additional funding (if required) has already been obtained.
When does my project need to completed by?
All work needs to have been completed by May 2024.
