We were mainly inspired to start the club because some of our children often get into trouble at school, and don’t find it very easy to make friends.We have 16 parents involved, plus 6 other local volunteers.We are also requesting money to pay for printing leaflets, to publicise the project to more families.Our bank details are: Anytown Bank Account Name: Anytown Kids Club Sort Code 010101 Account number 09010901 We have enclosed a copy of our constitution, and a bank statement.We have spent £36 on equipment hire, refreshments and publicity.
Since setting up our bank account in August, we have received £47 in donations from supporters.
By borrowing equipment from a local primary school, and running our sessions in the park, we have kept our costs very low.
Our weekly sessions have become very important to those involved.
If a funder has a standard application form, use it. We have information on Budgets for community groups, Constitutions and several information sheets on looking after your group’s money and getting your accounts independently examined.
Below is an example of a letter of application to a funder.
