At last, the future of grant making is here!
So what’s the problem?
For decades charities have had to waste time and money filling in many slightly different grant applications – and two thirds are unsuccessful. A 2019 study by Brevio and the University of Bath highlighted the scale of the problem.
Average annual number of grants each charity applies for
Average failure rate of grants applied for in the last year
Average hours required to complete a typical application
Estimated annual staff cost of writing grants (registered charities only)
The Brevio Solution
Brevio’s solution is a standard grant application form which charities fill in just once. Funders enter the criteria for their funds into Brevio. Then Brevio automatically matches the charity to the funds for which it is eligible.
Better for Charities
Brevio will massively reduce the time and money you spend on all grant applications, so you can spend more on your beneficiaries.
Better for Funders
You will only receive applications from charities that are eligible for your funding, so you can use your time more effectively.
Brevio was established to solve a systemic problem that has grown over decades in the charity sector. This has defined our approach, our core principles, how we structure our team, and how we get things done.
To ensure long term sustainability, both funders and charities will be charged a reasonable annual membership fee
Brevio is independent of any funder or charity so can fairly represent the needs of both grant-makers and charities
Through partnerships including the University of Bath and the Behavioural Insights Team, our research will deliver continuous improvement
We would like to thank the many organisations across the sector who have given us their honest and valued feedback. Here are some below:
