Raise more money for your charity with a grant fund from Agents Giving

The Agents Giving grant fund helps towards the set up costs of your fundraising event, so more of the money you raise goes to your chosen charity.

The second round of grant funding is still available and grant requests should be made in advance of your fundraising event and we will also help promote your event.

Many agents and their supported charities have already benefited from the fund:

Mark Crampton Smith at College & County helped organise ‘Agents for the Community’ on 1st July at Oxford carnival day.  Twenty- two lettings and sales agents were challenged to raise £20k from public donations to help Cowley Road Works a charity which provides programmes of cultural activity and engagement events. Their grant went towards branded t-shirts for the day.

Libby Jackson of Henry Simms Estate Agents in Heanor, Derbyshire helped organise a local fun day on 28th May with bouncy castle, stalls and a raffle in aid of the Priory Celtic whites under 10’s football team.  They raised funds for football kits, training equipment and clothing.  Their grant went towards the cost of the football kits.

Daniel Stephenson of Venture Properties organises an annual ‘Tour De Branch’, this year’s charity cycle ride will be on 5th August.  This is a 41-mile bike ride from Chester-Le-Street to Darlington, stopping at other offices in Durham, Crook and Bishop Auckland.  This year they are raising money for a cause close to many people – the Alzheimer’s Society.  Their grant went towards the rider’s shirts.

Peter Knight, Chairman of Agents Giving comments; “The Agents Giving grant fund is helping agents with their event set up costs, meaning that more of the money raised at your events goes directly to your chosen charity or cause”.

Any requests should be made via a registration form on the Agents Giving website;  http://agentsgiving.org/the-agents-giving-grant-fund To apply for a grant you must be fundraising for UK registered charities.
