The Blue Thread small grants enquiry form

Applications and assessments resources

As part of our open and trusting grantmaking initiative, we are collecting funder resources that show how participating grantmakers are adapting their practice and processes to be more open and trusting, in the hope it is helpful for other funders thinking about their own approaches.

This submission is from The Blue Thread as part of our research into open and trusting funding applications and assessments.

Our application process is a short online application form which gives groups the opportunity to tell us about their work in a light-touch way. We try to be clear about what we are looking to fund, and hope that the form is designed in such a way that even when we decline an applicant, they have not wasted too much time filling in the form.
