October edition of the GRIN Grants and Resources Databases out now

The October updates of the GRIN Grants and Resources Databases are out now, featuring over 1,000 grant programmes under the following headings:

o Additions and updates made during August and September.
o The main grants database, providing details the funding priorities, application process, deadlines and contact details for approximately 1,000 grant providers.
o A list of 350 COVID-19 Response Funds.
o Details of 200 grant-maker’s that focus their funding on the South West region.
o An index with grant-maker’s categorised under 600 main headings and sub-headings, and
o A Resources Database featuring around 200 often free materials and resources that not-for-profits can access to augment their fundraising.

The GRIN Grants Databases is different from many other grants databases in that, while it’s a searchable Excel spreadsheet, users can view the status of all grant programmes listed, while the Index tab enables users to quickly identify grant prospects.

For example, agencies searching for grant opportunities can easily obtain an overview of the main areas prioritised by the majority grant-providers. The Arts, disability, education, the environment and grant-makers that award against general charitable purposes all feature strongly.

The cost of subscription is £100 for a 24-month period. This includes a monthly update of both databases and subscription to the GRIN daily grants bulletin, which is circulated every weekday morning throughout the year at 8.30am.

The bulletin focuses on 2-3 grant programmes or associated resources each day, regular blogs by Emma Beeston of the Emma Beeston Consultancy and Sarah Taragon and Steve Woollett of Clarity CIC, and frequent contributions from subscribers. 

Today’s grants bulletin, for instance, provides details of the Trusthouse Charitable Foundation, which has just reopened its Small Grants programme and plans to reopen its Major Grants programme on Monday 9 November, the PwC Charitable Foundation’s ColourBrave Charity Fund and a link to the Royal Society of Chemistry’s A-Z of funding opportunities for organisations and individuals involved in the medical sciences.

Further information, a free 2-week trail of the grants bulletin and samples of both the databases and the grants bulletin are available on our website (see the ‘Products’ tab) or by emailing us on info@grin.coop
