Raising Funds from trusts and foundations

This is an extremely time consuming exercise so you should start your research immediately and be ready to submit applications as soon as you have been offered a firm place. The best research material available is in the following publications:

- The Directory of Grant Making Trusts published annually by the Charities Aid Foundation.

- A Guide to Major Trusts & The Educational Grants Directory both published by the Directory of Social Change

There are also regional variations of these directories. Copies of these publications should be available in your local library - make sure that you refer to the most up to date version of these directories.
