Although it isn’t a resource we use when compiling the daily grants bulletin, the Directory of Social Change has just published the latest edition of The Directory of Grant Making Trusts (DGMT).
The directory contains information on over £5billion worth of funding available to UK charities and lists over 2,000 of the largest grant-making charities that award grants to UK organisations. The combined giving of all the grant-makers in the new edition totals over £5.699 billion, marking an increase of around £290 million from the previous edition.
New to the Directory of Social Change’s DGMT are improvements to the book’s indexing, with additions such as ‘grant-makers by field of interest and type of beneficiary’. In addition, the new ‘grant-makers by type of organisation’ index, helps readers find the types of organisation that grant-makers will fund.
The cost of the 2020/21 directory is £125.00. Though we have a copy in the GRIN office, we don’t use the Directory of Grant Making Trusts because we’ve found that some of the information is inaccurate or out of date. The hard back copy is also quite difficult to search through compared to online directories.
Coincidentally, our own GRIN Grants Database is being sent out to subscribers this morning. Costing just £100 for a 24 month period, and including subscription to our daily grants bulletin, this is an excellent alternative to the Directory of Grant Making Trusts.
