We're helping funders to incorporate
digital into their grant-making
strategy, programmes and practices
Ways we can help you
Supporting Funder+ Programmes
CAST works with grantees to embed digital in their organisational strategy, culture and services. We provide hands-on support and leverage our network of trusted partners to help nonprofits supercharge their progress within a funding period.
Supporting the assessment of digital projects
Drawing on our extensive experience of funding tech for good, CAST helps funders in assessing and supporting digital projects.
Using digital for more effective grant-making
CAST supports funders to apply digital technology to improve their assessment, monitoring and management of grants.
“We worked with CAST to design a tool that would give applicants a more realistic understanding of what we would and would not fund. We were encouraged to build and test it with our users – doing this alongside applicants wasn’t always comfortable, and forced us to put ourselves in their shoes. So far we’ve cut applications by a third, meaning almost 1,000 organisations have saved time that would otherwise have been wasted.”

“It has been a new journey for our organisation and we have felt guided and supported as well as constructively challenged.”
We supported each of the teams on Comic Relief's TechvsAbuse programme to research and develop new digital products and services.
“We were encouraged to build and test our new eligibility quiz with our users – doing this alongside applicants wasn’t always comfortable, and forced us to put ourselves in their shoes.”
We helped Esmée Fairbairn filter ineligible/inappropriate funding applicants to their grant programmes.
