All churches receiving a grant are required to appropriately record the grant in their accounts as restricted funding. The grant should be acknowledged in your annual accounts in the year in which the grant offer is made and each financial year in which part of the funding is received.
We also ask that you acknowledge the grant in any published materials or broadcasts in relation to the funded work/project. Where appropriate, we would like you to use Cloudesley’s logo on relevant printed and digital materials. Where we assist sizeable projects, we will expect a more prominent physical acknowledgement of the charity’s support.
Please feel free to acknowledge Cloudesley’s support in other ways too. We really like the following acknowledgement ideas which Islington churches have already used:

Within six weeks of completing a funded project/work, please email Cloudesley’s office with a brief written report and a photograph or copy of a professional report signing off the works where appropriate. You can use Cloudesley’s Church Grants Monitoring Report Form (which will be emailed to you upon the project’s completion) or if you have already prepared a similar report for the Diocese or another funder for this work which covers the above points, you are very welcome to submit that to us instead.
Your report should include:
