An Answer to Prayer
Faith based groups feel that they are limited in their options for funding. With the difference of opinion over Lottery Funding and many churches feeling unable to avail of this central source of great aid a greater reliance on traditional sources of funding becomes necessary. However with congregations in decline weekly collections no longer meet the growing costs of ministries and even the basic upkeep of churches and ministers salaries.
Our services are geared to those who often find it difficult to access government funding, or whose committee or leaders are either divided or having difficulties making successful applications. We provide sympathetic yet professional advice and support with alternatives to Lottery Funding.
A good starting place will be a series of information and training events held by NICVA.
