Accessing Grants in the Not for Profit Sector

There's a wide range of grant funds available for a wide range of organisations

Check out our free grants search facility on both UK and European funds.

Here's the background

The Not for Profit sector has evolved over time. It is made up of a mix of organisations ranging from small local community groups to large national, multi branch organisations, some which are direct service providers and some fundraisers and grant givers.

Common key features that identify these organisations are:

Not for Profit Organisations value led: established with the objective of addressing a social need,      rather than simply to provide a service or generate revenue.
Not for Profit Organisations non profit making: reinvesting surplus revenue.
Not for Profit Organisations generally use volunteer staff in some way.
Not for Profit Organisations not under direct political control.

There are three broad sectors of organisations in society:

Not for Profit Organisations the business sector.
Not for Profit Sector Grants the public sector.
Not for Profit Sector Grants the not for profit sector or third sector.

The not for profit sector or third sector includes voluntary and community organisations, charities, social enterprises, cooperatives and partnerships, and art and cultural organisations.

There is an enormous range of grants from a wide range of European, national and local sources available to the third sector.
