External funding is money awarded from grant giving organisations – externally acquired financial support which is additional to the running costs of an organisation. Hence, grants are usually made for a specific activity or a project rather than the usual day-to-day activities of an organisation or group. In order to be eligible for a grant, the applicant has to meet the funder’s specific criteria and show how the proposed project will help to implement the funder’s targets and objectives.
