Latest grants list

The list is in date order and some deadlines are very soon. They will not be applicable to all of you (most are for specific regions), and you might find that none of them are suitable for your district. I have selected them from the latest Funding Central alert as being the most appropriate for WF districts. I hope that a quick scan of this list will allow you to find those sources appropriate to your district.

Fundraising Code of Practice

The Fundraising Regulator was established in January 2016, following widespread public and media concern about how charities contact potential donors. Woodcraft Folk has signed up to their Fundraising Code of Practice, which outlines the standards expected of all charitable fundraising organisations across the UK.
