Funding

Community groups operating across Aberdeenshire are welcome to request a free funding search to be carried out by our Funding Officer.
For more information, please contact your relevant Development Officer.

We also host a funding search engine that can be accessed via the link below, along with a handy PDF with helpful tips on how to write a funding application. To support this, we have included a video called 'The Nuts & Bolts of a Funding Application'. 

Take a look at our video for all you need to know about applying for funding. Here we give an overview of:

  • FUNDERS – who are they; where are they and what they will fund
  • PLANNING TO APPLY – evidence of need; planned outcomes or outputs; sustainability plans
  • THE APPLICATION – getting the detail correct; how much narrative; accuracy & relevance
  • Additional support available from AVA
