I fundraise for a 17th century Christopher Wren designed church in the City of London. We are desperately trying to raise £45,000 for the restoration of a 12th century tower which is connected to the building. Despite being surrounded by multi million pound businesses we still have not had any success in receiving money from them. Mostly due to the fact that many businesses only support certain charities or they just don't have the budget for making charitable donations. I would greatly appreciate any advice about finding alternatives to receiving donations from companies. We have also tried appealing to grant making trusts but again with no success. It almost seems that if your charity doesn't help the homeless or disabled children you don't really have a chance. Again, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
