Need inspiration or got some to share?

Looking for funding?

CAST itself isn’t a funder, but we are currently incubating a funder recommendation platform called Beehive.

Beehive uses open data to intelligently match social-impact organisations with the right funders. So you can check your eligibility and see what’s out there before you apply. Visit Beehive.
