Choosing the Correct Fund Type

Choosing the correct fund types when building up your funding package on your project record is extremely important.

If you are in receipt of a grant from the Circuit Model Trust Fund or District Advance Fund or are using local church funds held with TMCP you need to select the relevant type with the TMCP label e.g. Circuit Funds (TMCP). Funds which are held with TMCP can be requested via the payments form on the project record after the Consent Giving Body has given final consent to the project

You will see below a full list of all funding sources available to choose from when putting together your funding package.

You will see which body must confirm that the funds are available for the Project.

It is important to remember that Circuit Funds can only be confirmed by an authorised Circuit User and District Funds can only be confirmed by an authorised District user.
