Successful Funding Application Library
Funding applications are forms you complete and submit to funding bodies, organisations or trusts in the hopes of gaining money to support something you would like to do. In the arts, funding covers all sorts: a gallery’s running costs and programming, artist fees, staff payment, materials, money for research and development, marketing, printing, production, archiving, organisational development, travel… everything really. The arts relies on it. Artists and groups apply for themselves and if they’re lucky, they’ll get something; and big galleries apply to lots of different private and public funders in order to make up their big budgets. But knowing where to start when writing an application can be difficult; knowing who to apply to can be tricky as well.
This library is a resource of successful funding applications that you can learn from. Personally, I found writing them really confusing until I spent time reading some and then I could finally get a handle on the language used and the way budgets are put together. Take a look below, see if anything is relevant to what you're hoping to do, or learn from other applications' writing and shape. Look at what is being applied to and where, and check out the funders these are addressed to see to if they are appropriate for your project. The library will grow and we’ll try to furnish this page with even more information so that everyone can hopefully secure themselves some £££.
