What is FunderFinder?

FunderFinder GIN (Groups in need) is a computer software programme that helps charities and voluntary organisations identify which charitable trusts support their work. You use it in conjunction with various directories of grant making trusts held at our office.

What happens when you have entered all the information?
FunderFinder searches through all the funder profiles in its dataset (which is updated every six months) and comes up with a list of charitable trusts that you should consider. It can put your list in best match order, with the most relevant at the top.

 

What is the printout?
The printout has names of those funders you have selected but not the addresses or phone numbers. It tells you where you will find further information in which pages of directories. It might give short notes as well.

 

So there is still more work to do at the end
FinderFinder helps you identify funders to research. Most funders get many more requests for support than they are able to help. The quality of your application is what counts. So be prepared to spend more time getting your application right.

 

How long does it take?
It depends on how complicated your search is and whether you want to try different options. If you are new to FunderFinder you should probably allow half an hour. If you would like a member of Community First New Forest staff to carry out the search for you then please contact Debbie Grace whose details are on the front of this form.
