Ideal Projects – these projects all work with and directly benefit members of the community. This is a great position to be in when applying to trusts or foundations as many support those sorts of projects
Examples include the National Lottery, Local Council or Charitable Trusts
RAG – this may be more difficult however there may be trusts or foundations that support students and charitable work.
Sponsorship from a local business or company – offer something such as publicity in return for cash.
Donations from companies – e.g. art materials or decorations for the project
What will they get out of it? Offering something in return to the company often works wonders, don’t forget that there are 22,000 students at UAL - that is a lot of publicity for one company with little effort on their part!
