Trust Giving

Building Relationships and Raising Support from Trusts


Did you know that in the UK, over 10,000 charitable trusts and foundations give away annually nearly £2 billion to charitable cause? – And, a good proportion of these trusts channel some of their funds to the work of local and international Christian charities and projects.

Is your Christian charity receiving any support from trusts and foundations? Do you want to improve the performance of your fundraising efforts in this area?

Although, trust fundraising is becoming increasingly competitive we believe that with some good planning and targeted efforts it is possible to raise significant funds from trusts for capital appeals or for running costs of projects.

Here is how we can help your charity to get better returns from its trust fundraising efforts.

What We Offer

  • Launch a trust funding programme from scratch – we offer advice and support on how to develop good concepts for trust applications, do effective research, record keeping, bid writing, relationship building, etc;
  • Programme and trust mapping & matching – we identify key objectives of your charity’s programmes/ activities that require funding and match them with potential trusts. We can do research on your behalf to identify suitable trust quickly so you can start the application process straightaway;
  • Case for support development – we can draft compelling materials focused on your projects to secure funding from trusts;
  • Application writing support – we can prepare applications to trusts on your behalf;
  • ‘Start up trust fundraising’ advice and training programme. This is a programme for small charities that want to learn how to do trust fundraising.

It includes three two-hour skype sessions where we discuss and train your team on key aspects of launching a trust funding programme, templates for trust research, application writing tips and three one hour sessions of follow up on specific and agreed tasks.
