GET FUNDED MARCH 2013 - some hints and tips and info about various funds including Heritage lottery fund, Big Lottery Fund, Voluntary & Community Action, 


• Never ask for anything. Sell an investment opportunity
• Understand funders' strategic aims and objectives - that means don’t apply if you don’t qualify.
• Get very clear on your own strategic objectives. At the start state clearly who you are and what you are about.
• Get very clear on your own operational plan
• Success sells more than sympathy
• Share frustrations too
• Tell a story
• Wherever possible make a personal appeal
• Don't make an application, develop a relationship
• Finally: Fundraising is hard
