CAST’s funding comes from a mixture of grants from charitable foundations and funding for specific projects designed to accelerate social sector organisations’ digital agency, presence and influence.

For the year ending March 2023, CAST (and Catalyst) received grants from Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Paul Hamlyn Foundation, City Bridge Trust, The National Lottery Community Fund, Refugee Action, Fidelity Foundation, Tides Foundation, Yapp Charitable Trust, Tudor Trust and the Disrupt Foundation.

During this time, CAST also received grant funding for the Sport England Innovation and Digital Accelerator programme and delivered services as part of strategic partnerships, such as with Deloitte, Scouts and The King’s Fund.

CAST also occasionally receives one-off donations to help support continuation of core projects and services to the sector. If you would like to discuss ways to donate or strategic partnerships, please contact [email protected].
