Funding and Income Generation

Home » Support » Support & Services » Funding & Income

Every organisation needs to consider its income and financial sustainability. You might do that with grant funding, fundraising or charging for your services. Our support, training, and one-to-one advice will help your organisation develop the skills it needs to succeed. 

If you are new to funding and fundraising, we recommend watching our ‘quick guide’ videos here on YouTube as a first step.

Discounts and Funded Support

Discounts and some free support are available to eligible organisations.


We deliver training throughout the year on a range of topics for voluntary organisations. Our training sessions include key insights and practical advice on various fundraising topics. We promote good fundraising practice, illustrate with actual examples and build networking opportunities for mutual support. See what’s coming up.


1-to-1 Advice

We recommend an initial appointment with our Funding Advice Officer, which should take up to one hour. Our funding surgeries allow you to discuss income generation and focus on sustainable funding models for your organisation. Afterwards, you will receive written information containing tips, action points and links to further information.

This service is free for Glasgow City Organisations, supported by our funders. Please get in touch to arrange an appointment at or use our booking system below.

Appointments may also be available for organisations outside Glasgow when capacity allows but may come at a charge. Please drop us an email, and we can discuss the help available.

We also offer an application review service for your funding applications. Please contact us by email with the details of your upcoming application.
