Maximising Your Heritage Lottery Funding Potential

Page history last edited by Blaurbur 2 years ago

A grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund can proclaim a really bright future for many not-for profit organisations. It could provide considerable funding for a structured capital undertaking - or an award for a matched-giving endowment, aimed at developing further philanthropic support and a more supportable financial future. Where a lot of organisations lose, regardless of how rewarding their heritage venture, remains in choosing the wrong grant programme or failing to look for expert assistance when making their application.

There are numerous HLF plans to choose from, with varying levels of grant offered. Here is an at-a-glance guide to the some of the brand-new HLF programmes, available to organisations in the United Kingdom, that have lately been introduced.

Heritage Lottery Funding Resilient Heritage

These grants are readily available to organisations that desire to improve their operations with the development of new skills and expertise, or fresh models of administration, management, business and revenue. Grants range between £ 3,000 and £ 250,000 and are awarded to a wide variety of initiatives intended to boost organisational resilience.

Heritage Endowments

These are meant to match-fund the generation or development of an endowment fund that will offer a long lasting source of financial backing. Candidates can select a specified amount of £ 250,000, £ 500,000 or £ 1 million, to be matched pound for pound by private donations. Along with the match funding element, up to 10% of the grant could be made use of to resource projects. So, if you were looking for £ 250,000 in match funding you might make an application for an additional sum of as much as £ 25,000 to support the expected expenses of running a dedicated fundraising campaign. This great site Gifted Philanthropy offers quite a bit more information on the topic of charity consultants.

Kick The Dirt

This is a £ 10 million grants plan for enthusiastic and ingenious undertakings that intend to change how heritage organisations engage with young people. Application submissions are welcomed from consortiums of three or more organisations, at least one of which must demonstrate a trustworthy performance history of working with youngsters. Successful proposals will get amounts ranging from £ 500,000 to £ 1million, for undertakings that make heritage more relevant, dynamic and enduring for a better diversity of youngsters.

Gifted Philanthropy's team of advisers are among the most knowledgeable in their field when it comes partnering clients in preparing successful HLF applications. Our recent workshops on assisting not-for profits through the HLF procedure were very well received and provided delegates with the expertise they required to take the next steps.
