Sources of Funding

There are many funders out there, and there are search engines available to help you find the right one for your project, and organisations that can offer advice on this.

KDP produce a fortnightly information bulletin that contains up to date funding information that we think may be useful to groups within K&M.  You can sign up to the Bulletin here.

There are nationwide funders such as The National Lottery and also more local sources.  Within Kincardine and Mearns we have several windfarm community benefit funds that you can apply to if your project is within the area of benefit and meets the fund’s criteria. Local and national government can also have various funding opportunities available.
