Get funding ready: a guide for first time fundraisers

Fundraising for arts activities is a highly competitive process that can be very time-consuming with disappointing results. Written by Sound Connections Chair Katrina Duncan, this guide is intended to help you think before you take the plunge, to consider how to prepare for making your pitch for support and do all you can to ensure that your bid is the best it can be.

The guide is full of helpful advice for fundraising applications, including where to apply and how to write your bid, and links to a vast array of helpful resources from a number of organisations including The National Foundation of Youth Music and Arts Council England.
