GRIN named as one of the leading social enterprises in the Southern England SME Awards 2020

GRIN has been named as one of the best social enterprises in southern England by SME News in its Southern Enterprise Awards for 2020.

Recognising our pro bono support for many not-for-profits in the UK and overseas during COVID-19, the citation from the Awards Panel reads:

“GRIN SW LLP has demonstrated excellence, commitment, dedication even in the face of uncertainty. After overcoming such disruption, we believe more than ever, that you should be recognised.”

GRIN Grants Bulletin for the Autumn 2020

The daily grants bulletin will run up to Friday 18 December this year. As with other years, we’ll be taking a break over Christmas and the New Year and plan to be back on either Monday 4 or 11 January 2021.

During the autumn, the grants bulletin will feature:

o 2 grant programmes each Monday.
o 3 grants articles on Tuesday to Thursdays, consisting of a main grants programme, a little known grant-making charity and a local grant scheme, covering areas where subscribers are based.
o 1 main grant programme on Friday, plus Beeston’s Blog, Clarity CIC’s monthly blog or a further grants related resource or item.

Don’t forget that if you want to advertise a job vacancy, event or simply promote your organisation, you can do so free of charge in the daily grants bulletin.

GRIN Grants Database

The September edition of what we call the ‘Interim Grants Database’ has been circulated today, featuring details of 76 grant programmes that are currently open to applications.

The next full Grants and Resources Databases, with searchable details of over 1,000 grant programmes and more than 200 – often free – resources, is due to go out on Monday 5 October 2020.
