Possible Sources of Funds
This page lists possible sources of national and local funds. Many relate directly to archaeology or local history and heritage projects, but you may also think of other environmental funds. We should not forget other sources such as charging for talks and events such as those employed by other community groups such as the local church.
There is a lot of very useful information on funding sources on the Council for British Archaeology (CBA) website and the York Council for Voluntary Service has a number of local sources of funding listed.
If you know of a useful funding source not listed here, lets us know about it and we will let everyone know.
Just email Jon Kenny.
These people can do grant searches, provide help with grant applications, proof read grant forms and run training sessions on how to apply for grants.
