Exploring core funding

Core funding is essential for organisations to survive and thrive – often covering their leadership, financial management and accommodation costs. It can provide organisations with greater stability, as well as increased scope for growth and innovation. However, in a tough funding environment, it can be increasingly difficult for organisations to meet these costs and many grant-makers have traditionally preferred to offer funding for frontline delivery or projects.
