Funding and Grants

“But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand. Lord our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you.”                    1 Chronicles 29: 14 + 16

(David’s dedication of the gifts for the building of the temple: one of the earliest capital funding campaigns!) 


We can offer training, advice and support to parishes who are seeking funds for large fundraising appeals including building and community projects, as well as for new non-clergy staff. Please contact us at the earliest opportunity.

Funding / Fundraising Guides

The Church of England’s Parish Resources website offers a range of practical Funding and Fundraising Guides to help parishes raise funds for large fundraising appeals (building projects) as well as funding the on-going mission of the church.

Capital Campaigns

Capital Fundraising Campaigns raise large sums of money for building maintenance and/or large projects. Campaigns can last anything from two to twelve years and each Capital Campaign requires clear planning, preparation and good project management.

Each appeal needs to be considered in its unique local context, and parishes are encouraged to contact Juliet Evans at an early stage of considering a possible project.
