Funding Possibilities

I’ve been looking this afternoon to see what funding opportunities are available for organisations who are interesting in implementing a new CRM database.

The most relevant one is the Paul Hamlyn Foundation – Youth Fund, which is offering grants up to £60k to enable organisations who support young people to improve their reach. It covers a wide range of activities and possibilities, but includes the following:

  • Additional fundraising or income generation capacity.
  • Upgrading IT systems or website to reach young people online.
  • Installing a new database to capture data on the organisation’s impact.

CiviCRM can help with fundraising, communicating with constituents (in this case, young people) and can also record impact.

Applications accepted all year round.

There are other more general funding opportunities that may help, such as the Leeds Community Foundation Enterprise Start Up/Growth Fund that may incorporate the implementation of a database within a larger project:
