GRIN (which stands for ‘Grants Resources Information News‘) is a social enterprise that works with not-for-profit organisations across the United Kingdom and internationally to help them secure the funding and resources they need.
At the start of 2024 we made two major changes to how we work:
(1) we moved to being a subscriber-focused organisation. This means that the detailed advice, information and resources we provide will only be made available to subscribers to our daily Grants Bulletin and monthly Grants Database (see our ‘Products’ page for details). We’ll still aim to provide advice in response to all enquiries, but our support to non-subscribers is likely to be succinct. Further information about our plans and priorities for 2024 are available HERE.
(2) we introduced a Micro-Awards scheme, ring-fenced to our subscribers. On the last Friday of each month, a Voluntary, Community or Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisation nominated by a subscriber (which can include their own organisation) will be drawn at random to receive a small award of £250. Although it’s only a nominal amount, we’ve introduced the Awards in recognition of the amazing work VCSE agencies do, often with limited resources. We hope to increase the funding available in 2025. Details about how the GRIN Awards scheme works can be found at this LINK.
Individuals and organisations that are not presently subscribers to our services are still welcome to contact us, but any advice we provide is likely to be brief and we will probably signpost to another service provider.
Individuals and organisations in the UK or overseas who would like to sign up to GRIN may do so at any time. Simply email Paul or Dom at email@example.com for details. We offer a free 2-week trial for anyone who would like to try out the daily Grant Bulletins.
