Trusts and Foundations are very diverse. They vary in size, amount of funding and the procedures used to apply for a grant. Larger Trusts may give big grants. However, we cannot ignore smaller grant-making bodies, as often a small grant for Rs.50,000 or so, may be the key to opening the doors with larger funders. It definitely improves your credibility when they see that another body is happy to invest in your project.
Trusts and Foundations are grant-making bodies set up specifically to give money for charitable purposes. In the UK, there are about 8,800 independent grant making trusts and foundations, giving about £2 billion each year. Does India have as many? How much do Indian Trusts and Foundations give?
