The grants panel will sit in May and September 2017 to give groups enough time to undertake their fundraising activities before they apply. The panel may review the frequency of awards depending on the volume of applications received. Groups wishing to apply for the Fundraising Match Scheme should list their recent activities and the amount of money raised, GCF will match up to 100% of funds subject to sufficient funds. The panel will be looking for the most novel and creative activities and will encourage groups to exchange good practice in fundraising with others.
