August has been an exceptionally busy time for SBSA, especially for fundraising work, which is why the blog has been quieter of late. During that time I have had plenty of thoughts and ideas for new blog posts whirring around my mind, however with the needs of clients coming first, those ideas have failed to make the leap from brain to website. As a reflective person that loves writing, regular blogging never feels like a chore so I’m really keen to get back into this during September. The experience of starting and running a small business requires juggling many different things – something that I am still adjusting to! And here I thought that August was supposed to be a quiet time!
This month saw SBSA secure its first funding success for a client. A grant of £10,000 was secured from the Heritage Lottery Fund to start the process of community involvement in the visioning for a prominent heritage building. This award represented the first step in delivering a heritage development strategy that SBSA were commissioned to produce earlier in the year. Further updates on this work will be shared once the project details become publicly available.
Drawing on its growing reputation for fundraising, SBSA is in the process of developing further funding applications for other clients. We are highly experienced in this kind of work – translating ideas addressing a need into clear strategies that align with funder objectives. So do get in touch if you would like advice and support in how to articulate your idea in terms that trusts and foundations require. Helping to make worthy projects happen is what we’re all about!
