The Trussell Trust – a charity dedicated to ending hunger and poverty in the UK – has confirmed secured funding streams of more than £1 million thanks to its investment in GRANTfinder, Idox’s flagship funding solution.
Since implementing GRANTfinder three years ago, the Trust has experienced significant benefits including time and resource savings and a substantial boost to its funding income. In the last financial year, trust fundraising alone contributed almost £1.2 million to the wider £6.6 million funding pot.
Richard Bolton, Charitable Trusts Fundraiser at the Trust, endorses GRANTfinder as being integral to that success:
“We were attracted to GRANTfinder because it offered reliable and timely information on funders. It also has a superb built-in function that enables us to cascade information across all departments of The Trussell Trust and, most significantly, to every foodbank in the network.
“Using the solution, we’re able to triage grant opportunities efficiently. I use it daily to monitor new funds as they appear, and I’m now able to quickly share information about important funds to head office and Area Managers. Back in the day, I used paper directories and a number of search machines – none of them even come close to the features offered by GRANTfinder.”
The funding received will help the Trust to provide a vital service to those in crisis and get closer to realising its vision of bringing communities together to end hunger and poverty.
