Looking for funding to help with a club project? Want ideas on how to raise funds for the club? Looking to explore how your club can improve its financial management?

Grant funding

You have probably heard of clubs who have successfully applied for grants and funding from various public ‘pots’. This can be an excellent way to get funding for specific club projects – especially those which will grow your club membership, introduce new people to bowls or help your club link with your local community.

In most cases grant funding comes with limitations on how the money can be spent, and what kind of projects are eligible – and we encourage you to contact the Bowls Scotland development team to see what funding opportunities exist and how you can access them.

Best practice club finance management

In many cases we work with clubs who are looking to bring funding in, but have not reviewed their financial management practices to see if that can help them to plan and improve their club’s financial situation.

When was the last time your club shopped around to save money? What is your club’s budget for the year ahead?

These questions may lead you and the club to identifying some quick wins, and big improvements that make a big difference to your club’s finances.
