  Frequently Asked Questions

Ideas for getting help with funding:

How can we get help with funding our project or event?

We can, for some projects, help schools seek grant funding (although this will require a longer lead in time). We are working in partnership with a grant application service who can help schools apply for funding for art projects, provided the project meets certain grant criteria. Please get in touch for more information about this service.

We do know it can be difficult to get all the funding needed, so a few ideas which have worked for some schools:

  • Some schools do ask the children/parents to make a small contribution each towards the cost of the workshop.
  • Some schools have managed to get a contribution from their PTA.
  • Some schools have managed to get sponsorship from local businesses.
  • You might be able to get some funding support from your Local Education Authority, under the *Standards Fund – for further information contact your LEA or follow the link to CfBT Education Trust Young Gifted & Talented and the following pdf document:
  • You could try asking some local charities; e.g. the Rotary Club www.rotary-ribi.org/ who are sometimes able to fund local ‘good causes’.
  • *Please note: making a grant application can be an excellent source of financial support for your project; however, please keep in mind that, this will involve complying with a formal application process, which will take time and energy and may not, in the end, be successful.
