Before you submit your idea, please download both guideline packs below and give the Sponsor Guidelines to your Vicar, Youth Worker or Chaplain. You should read the Applicant Guidelines and work through the checklist at the back of with them. This helps you both understand what to expect.
An application to The Spark Fund comes with a commitment to see your project idea through to completion. We encourage you to prayerfully consider whether you can commit the time – please read the guidelines first so you know exactly what’s expected.
- Talk about your idea with your friends and ask an adult to ‘sponsor’ you – this person will be your main support throughout the process (they could be your youth worker, vicar or school chaplain)
- Read the guidelines in full with your Sponsor
- Submit your initial idea
- Attend a “Funding Factory” workshop to chat through and develop your ideas, where you’ll begin filling in the grant application form, which we’ll provide during the workshop!
