Hope Beyond can provide between 10% and 80% of a project’s costs, up to a total of £50,000. Find out more and how to apply here

The National Churches Trust's foundation grants programme funds small works to church buildings that cost up to £10,000 (excluding VAT) by providing grants of up to 50% of the cost (up to £5,000). Works would need to have two quotes in place and permissions, if required. Decisions are made on a monthly basis. The final deadline for 2020 funding is 30 October 2020. Read more.
