So how does it work?
Well, every project and every funding bid is different, so each process is tailored specifically to the bid in question to maximise chances of success.
Having there are certain questions you need to be ready to answer if you would like your funding bid to be taken seriously:
Do you have a site?
You may have identified an area of land for your proposed parkour park, but you also need to think about; who owns the land, are there any current development plans for the site, will you need planning permission for this site, and is the land suitable for a parkour facility?
What you do and your group represent?
To improve your chances of getting your project off the ground and to secure external funding you will need to act and behave like a business or professional group. You'll need to know; who is involved in the project, what local community support is there, what kind of organisation have you created, has your group been constituted, and does your group already have a bank account?
What information do you already have about your project?
Funders like to know more about your project and the reasons behind it. Specifically they will need to know about; the scope of your project including monetary value, the proposed or potential fundraising target aim, any secured funds, and local consultations.
