Three things you need to do to make sure your grant gets paid

Before we can pay you, we will need you to send us some things. We cannot return original documents, but you can request extra copies from your bank. Here are the three things you need to send us:

number 1

Grant Acceptance Agreement

This will be included in the e-mail we sent you. It says that you accept the grant according to the terms and conditions in the offer letter. It must be signed by your organisation’s: 

  • Chair 
  • Treasurer 
  • Secretary 
  • or, for organisations with a turnover of more than £10 million per year, the Finance Director. 
number 2

Proof of your bank account

We cannot pay any grant money until we have this proof. We accept any of the following: 

  • Original bank statement (please note we cannot accept print-outs from online banking or photocopies of original statements) 
  • Original paying-in slip. 
  • Original letter on your bank’s headed paper. It must show the account name, account number and sort code. It must be signed by an appropriate employee of the bank (you can ask your bank for this; see an example of a bank confirmation letter). 
number 3

Anything else which is as a condition of your grant.

We will have included these in your Grant Award Sheet. Usually, we will not pay you any money until we have proof you have met these conditions. Sometimes, we may pay a small amount of your grant but won’t pay any more until the conditions have been met. 

These conditions will be outlined in your Grant Offer letter, as part of the Grant Summary. They will be listed in the section labelled ‘Additional Requirements’.
