You need clear criteria that you mark against we have applied four years in a role for different projects and never been funded and never given feedback
They just don’t communicate or build relationships
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We do understand that it can be especially disappointing to be turned down at the first stage of our application process. We try to keep our guidelines as open and flexible as possible, so that a wide range of organisations doing a huge variety of work are able to apply to us, but the trade-off is that we receive many more good applications than we are able to fund. We have worked hard to keep our initial application as brief as possible, but know that a lot of work still goes into each application. One of the reasons for us being on Grant Advisor is to receive honest feedback on this open access approach, and we will be sharing your comments with our trustees and feeding them into a wider review process.
If you are considering applying again we'd encourage you to give us a call on 020 7727 8522 to chat through what you do, what you are looking for funding for, and possible reasons why we didn't take previous applications to second stage.
Reviewer UK712 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2017
The Tudor Trust is open to new ideas. They value honesty and we appreciate their openness to the process of learning by doing. We had funding for a post to drive a new approach for us; it was refreshing that we did not need to hide or bury our learning process when things that did not go as expected.
Positive leader in the field, Risk taker, Insightful, Friendly, Builds relationships, "Gets" nonprofits and issues, Openminded, Responsive
Current or former grantee
Funded for lesser amount
Communication is with the Director of the Tudor Trust by letter. Letters are promptly answered, full and thorough.
Maybe a discussion with us about the size of grant beforehand - a small but vital piece was not funded in our service, which had a disproportionate impact.
Understand that to grow and develop, an organisation and its people need to be free to test and try, and that sometimes things don't work out - but you have learnt, and can still grow.
Thanks for being our first reviewer and for sharing your experience of Tudor with others. We will be sharing all the ‘advice given’ by our reviewers with our staff team and trustees, and will reflect on all points raised.
