HOW WE ARE FUNDED
Our income is made up of annual membership fees and monthly subscriptions, plus a range of grants from trusts and foundations, housing associations, Trafford Council, and other charitable sources, plus Gift Aid.
To keep our weekly classes as affordable as possible, we apply for grants on an on-going basis to cover our costs (which include facilitators’ fees, venue costs, insurance, DBS checks etc)
We review our annual membership fee and monthly subscription fees each year, and details of costs can be found on Weekly Sessions. We also have ways of supporting those facing hardship, details of which can be found in our financial policy.
We have been successful in applying for the following grants which enabled us to set up and continue running Stretford Children’s Theatre. We are grateful to all our funders for their support and commitment to our small but significant local charity:
We also receive income through purchases made via Amazon Smile, and through CAF (Charities Aid Foundation) both of which are easy ways for anyone to contribute. We are also signed up to the Fundraising Regulator and have a commitment to raising funds in an ethical and responsible way.
