Our funding support

Fundraising is vital for the survival of any voluntary sector organisation.

It involves finding the time, resources, volunteers, expertise, and knowledge to seek out new funding streams, to raise funds from the general public, find private sector partners, or find grants to apply for.

At Catalyst we know how difficult it can be to locate funding in the current economic environment. We offer support and advice for anyone looking to fund a project that benefits the people of Stockton-on-Tees.

Catalyst delivered 46 Grantfinder appointments in 2016/17, which along with our bid writing support resulted in £144,000k funding for the organisations, that we are aware of to date.

Grantfinder Database

With access to the Idox GrantFinder database, professional bid writers to act as critical friends, professional development funding, weekly updates on new funding through our e-bulletin, and our mission to help connect the sector, Catalyst are aiming to support VCSE organisations in the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees no matter their level of experience in the charity funding arena.
