Grant management

We can provide support to help you manage and deliver grant programmes.

We currently work with Tesco and Groundwork UK to support the delivery of the Bags of Help programme in Scotland. This has supported over 2000 Scottish community projects with over £6million awarded.

Previously, we worked with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to support the community grant and Flagship programmes for Grow Wild, and have distributed over £1million to greenspace projects for the Scottish Government.

Crowdfunding and fundraising training

Through our partnership with MyParkScotland, we can provide crowdfunding services for specific projects or programmes, with bespoke training and support in running your crowdfund.

Working with the Resourcing Scotland's Heritage (RHS) partnership we have developed an extensive range of resources to help develop skills and build capacity for fundraising, particularly from individuals, trusts and businesses. The four-year programme finished in June 2018. Read the Resourcing Scotland's Heritage programme evaluation  

Based on our learning from the RHS programme we coffer tailored training on fundraising and crowdfunding.

Not sure where to begin you fundraising journey?

Have a look at the “Inspiring Fundraising”digital toolkit. This is online resource that encapsulates many elements of the training delivered through the RSH programme. It uses a combination of films, animations and case studies in a range of accessible formats, including British Sign Language and audio-description. Users are given a step-by-step guide to effective fundraising, from understanding the principles of fundraising to developing and implementing a successful fundraising strategy.
