We’re one of the few providers of a full online grant making service. And, with our experience in designing and running grant programmes for a range of donors, we’re ideally placed to help you with whatever you need.

Meet our team

  • We’ve got over 70 years’ experience in advising and delivering on grantmaking.
  • We awarded £6million in grants last year to charities.
  • We’re trusted by large organisations and the UK Government to run grant programmes for them.


Designing a grant programme

You can trust us to make your grantmaking programme a success. We’ve had the privilege of working with organisations such as State Street Corporation, Hyde Charitable Trust and the UK Search and Rescue Volunteer Training Fund to design great programmes.

We can help you:

  • Start your own successful grant programme.
  • Navigate the challenges of making grants.
  • Focus your grant making to get the right applicants.

Get in touch

Our charity advisory team can also work with you to build advice and support into your grant programme. Take a look at our charity advisory service to find out more about this and see examples of how we've worked with other grantmakers in this way.

Delivering your grantmaking

Use our experience to run your grantmaking initiative, while you get on with business. We can provide this service tailored specifically to your needs as we have for Smart Energy GB in Communities, Sainsbury’s Community Budget and Warburtons Community Grants.

We can help you:

  •  save admin time and resource
  •  navigate the challenges with grantmaking including validating non-registered UK charities
  •  manage applications, select and pay grants on your behalf
  •  with full overview reporting so you can monitor the impact your grants are making
