Operating or core cost grants can be used to help pay your bills or rent and towards your salaries.
We don’t use the term ‘unrestricted’ as our operating/core cost grants can’t be put towards endowments, building up your organisation’s reserves or paying off loans. They are to help your organisation deliver its vital work. They are sometimes referred to as ‘revenue grants’ by other funders.
Capital means building works or repairs, or equipment that's necessary to your organisation's work.
These grants are for a specific project or area of your work. It will have a defined scope of work and timescale.
