Funding and Funders

Sales and Donations

COGS Prepares 4 Life CIO relies on funding to ensure it's continuation. Our plants and woodwork sales bring in a portion of our income, as well as public donations. We are registered for Gift Aid with the HMRC which enables us to make the most of any donations we receive, whether big or small.

External Funders

The support we get from external funders is crucial to the continuation of the charity, and we are delighted to shout about who funds our projects and proudly supports the charity and recognize how essential the service is, and the good work that it does to improve not only the lives of the service users, but also the surrounding community as well.
Current Funders include:

We are so pleased to have received a £1000 donation from The Axis Foundation towards our Grow-Cook-Eat project! The money will go towards buying additional ingredients for the lads to add to their homegrown fruit and vegetables so they can learn to cook meals that they can replicate at home! Thank you!

We were delighted to be notified that The D'Oyly Carte Charitable Trust had agreed to award us a grant of £760.00 to purchase a huge amount of compost and manure to replenish the planters and vegetable beds we use around the site. Not only will this give our plants a boost, but it will help keep the lads fit and active shovelling all that muck around!! :-D

After searching for organisations who could help us work towards a sustainable and low impact service The Hedley Foundation gave us a wonderful grant of £2000.00 to enable us to purchase a solar power system and a recirculation fan for our greenhouse!
