The charity perspective

How funders can help


Be clear about terminology.

Core costs

Consider your approach to funding core costs.

Continuation funding

Be open to continuation funding by asking your organisation four questions.

Sustain the organisation

If the organisation is what needs to be sustained, then longer-term unrestricted funding is likely to be the right answer.

Sustain values

Help organisations by exploring how you support: in funding, learning and sharing their experiences.

Sustain learning

Enable organisations to distil and distribute their learning.
