Identifying the best funders for your work

We use the top search tools to make sure your appeals are carefully targeted.

Writing bids 

With over 20 years’ experience of successful bid-writing, we can tailor your bids to fit the precise requirements of funders. We achieve outstanding success rates – for example, all of the 12 Big Lottery bids submitted by us last year were funded. We helped our clients raise a total of over £1.5 million in 2015.

Beware of the Bull can help you devise a 3 or 5 year funding strategy to take your organisation into the future with confidence.
