How we're funded

Where our money comes from and where it goes

BRF's funding comes from a combination of the income we are able to generate through our charitable activities and the generous support of individuals, churches and charitable trusts.

Sales of Bible reading notes, books and other resources generate a proportion of our overall funding needs.

However, to finance the full cost of providing all that we offer (including Messy Church, Who Let The Dads Out?, The Gift of Years, Parenting for Faith and our work with children in primary schools and with churches), we also need to secure funding from donations, grants and legacies, alongside the modest fees that we charge for training and events.

Other than Gift Aid, we receive no funding from government or other statutory bodies, or from the National Lottery.
