Charities are non-profit organisations that provide services and grants to the community, individuals or other agencies. Charity projects are usually in the form of social services, community programs and research projects. Since charities are non-profit, the bulk of their funding comes from private donations and grants. If you are a charity looking for funding for your projects, there are organisations available to help.
