With this guide, you'll have access to key information on about 2,000 grant-making charities, each with the potential to give £40,000 a year or more.

You'll have the information you need to gain a share of around £4 billion, with entries outlining grant-makers’ selection criteria, how to apply and what kinds of projects they fund.

You'll be able to go right to the most relevant funders thanks to the extensive indexes. Grant-makers are distinguished by geographical area, field of interest, type of beneficiary and type of grant available.

funded, and those that don't qualify

‘So great fundraising, needs great fundraisers, but like other crafts, they also need the best tools and The Directory of Grant Making Trusts is a key part of any fundraiser’s toolkit.
Paul Farthing, MInstF, Director of Fundraising, NSPCC [from the Foreword]

'After previously outsourcing our fundraising we decided to try to do it ourselves using the Directory of Grant Making Trusts. It has been like a bible to us, an invaluable source of information and assistance as we attempt to build a world that enriches later life. We are now on a roll and benefiting from growing our fundraising talent and knowledge in-house.'
James Lewis, Chief Executive, Action For Elders Trust

‘I came to the DGMT as a new fundraiser, and was amazed at its breadth, detail and accuracy. To date I have raised £9,000 using it, and although I have since expanded my portfolio of fundraising methods, it continues to be an invaluable resource. I would recommend it to any fundraiser, but especially to new charities who have little idea of the sheer number and range of trusts that exist in the UK, all of them looking for the right place to put their funds. If we're looking for them, they, in a sense, are also looking for us.’
Gary Dexter, Asthma international

‘The Directory of Grant Making Trusts has been extremely useful to us this year, providing information on trusts that we have not found elsewhere. Within three weeks of sending off an application we received grant that covered the cost of the investment and more.’
Frances Fielding, British Wireless for the Blind Fund

‘Using The Directory of Grant Making Trusts has helped focus our fundraising. We now avoid blanket approaches and succeed by concentrating our applications in key areas, saving us and our charity time and money. I would certainly recommend it to any charity or organisation looking for funding.’
Paul Roper, Director, Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses, London
