Fundraising

Is your parish planning a project?  Would you like some support to plan, develop and fund your idea?  All projects, from large to small, require dedication and resources from parishes but this does not mean that you have to do it on your own.

Julia Cawthorne has joined the Curial Team as Trust and Grants Applications Officer.  Julia has 15 years’ experience as a Fundraiser and has worked for a number of charities, raising money for a wide range of projects.

This role is key within Curial activities as the aim is to secure funding for parishes, programme and project work.  This will be achieved by researching, developing and preparing funding applications.

Julia will offer clear guidance on opportunities for funding and will provide support to enable funding requirements to be met such as undertaking a consultation exercise to determine a need within the parish for a project and the benefits it would bring to the community.

If you have an idea for a project and are not sure if funding is available or you would like support in making an application then please contact the Trust and Grant Applications Officer to arrange a meeting.
