Learn how to extract the essential information from a free and honest source of detail on every Foundation in the UK.

Often funders’ websites tell you what they would like you to know, not necessarily the truth.  Yet the audited accounts are full of plain honesty.  Being able to read these accounts will help you to make accurate decisions on whether to approach a Foundation and make estimates of your real chances of success. 

We will gently take you through the key terms so that you can make full use of these incredibly valuable and free resources.
