Mission Statement

At GD Funding we are passionate about achieving your funding goals and helping you realise your project, whether you are a school, PTA, sports club, uniform organisation or a community group.

We have a collective experience of working over 10 years in the funding sector and have secured in excess of £8 million for our clients. This has been attained by our deep knowledge of funding together with our expertise in guiding applicants through the funding journey, understanding needs, opportunities and what’s possible. Our commitment to work with you comes from a partnership approach at the outset and the ability to have an ongoing relationship with each of our clients to support them further.

Our Team

We are passionate about excellent customer service and like to build long term relationships with our clients over a number of years. We love to help with funding, but we can also use our existing relationships and partnerships to help where needed with designing, arranging and delivering your chosen project.
