Grant Funding

Aktuelle-Bilder-Centrale, Georg Pahl (Bild 102)Applying for grant funding can be a time-consuming and overwhelming process, but it is one of the best ways to gather the funds required to carry out the necessary repairs or alterations to your church building.

The ‘Charitable Grants for Churches’ document below provides details of all of the organisations providing grant funds for repairs or alterations to church buildings, as well as funds towards the conservation of fixtures and fittings, and religious activities. Information is provided about the grants criteria for each organisation, as well as the amount of money they will generally award, and how to apply to them.

A document providing a list of ‘Local Grants for Historic Churches’ has also been written for the Diocese of Peterborough. This is provided below.

Unfortunately almost all of these organisations receive more eligible applications than they are able to fund. Therefore it is important to tailor any application to the specific organisation you are applying to, taking note of their priorities and their main grant criteria.

If you would like to discuss grant funding for a project at your church, contact Ben Smith, Historic Churches Support Officer, who will be able to provide you with further advice.
