Empowering charities to speak up about funder practice

 

Empowering charities to speak up about funder practice

Sometimes, charities receive a poor service when applying for and receiving grants. No matter how unclear a grant application process, how inaccessible the foundation staff are, how prolonged the decision making, or how onerous or disproportionate the reporting requirements, charities haven’t had a platform to share their experiences.

 

Grant Advisor UK seeks to change that. Currently running as a pilot, Grant Advisor UK is a free website that enables charities and fundraisers to post totally anonymous reviews of funders. Reviews are a public, transparent and user-led way of holding funders to account. The site is being hosted by CAST, a tech for good charity.

 

Anyone who has sought or secured funds from any of the funders listed on the site can post a review, simply by going to the website. There is plenty of opportunity to flag up good practice, as well as to say where things could be improved.

 

To post a review, or to read the published reviews, visit grantadvisor.org.uk It is free, totally anonymous, and a service to fellow charities and fundraisers.
