You have been awarded a Large Grant if the charity has issued you with an Grant Letter which includes a reference. We've streamlined forms so that you no longer have to justify the spend if this claim is going against an awarded Large Grant. To draw down funds from your Large Grant, please ensure that you have the Grant Reference, Fund Name and Fund Number which can all be found in the Grant Letter. Select "Drawdown Funds from Charity approved Grant" on page 3 of the application form and enter the Designated Fund Name and Number and your Grant Reference where applicable.Please note, the Lead Grant Holder (who the Large Grant is addressed to on the Grant Letter) will be asked to approve all draw downs against Large Grants. Help and Support: Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
