Grants

To date BIG won three grants and raised the rest of our funds through sponsorship and donations.

2022: Reading Borough Council Small Grants Award (£1000). This was awarded to enable the purchase of stone-sculpting tools, and transport for the stone used in BIG's free Islamic Art Stone Sculpting sessions.

2020: RVA Reading Community Grant (£2000). This was used to purchase gardening equipment, PPE, and training, amongst other things, and allowed us to pay for a garden guide to help with on-site development.

We are still looking for funding for benches, screens, a canopy, a garden trolley, a wormery, trellises, and employing garden buddies for vulnerable adults.

BIG is funded solely through donations and the grants we win. As a 100% not-for-profit organisation, all funds received go directly towards supporting our projects. So if you are a corporate organisation who would like to donate towards this, we would be immensely grateful. To donate, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

No funding is received from any form of lottery.
