Grant-giving bodies

Grants from all sorts of different organisations can be a blessing when trying to find funds for projects.

However, grant providers may have restrictions on the types of projects they will fund. For example, some grant providers will only provide grants for historical, heritage, or special artistic or architectural projects. Therefore, it is important to read the grant provider’s guide or terms before applying so that you know whether your church qualifies for a particular grant.
