Incomplete Application Forms

Funding bodies regularly return applications to the applicants stating that they are incomplete. Understandably, funding bodies are not usually prepared to consider a project that hasn't properly completed the application form or that has not attached the relevant supporting material. Listed below are some of the typical reasons why applications are returned as incomplete:

  • The club's bank statements are not included in the submission
  • The club's bank statements are not original (i.e. they are photocopied)
  • The club's bank statements are older than 6 months.
  • The club's constitution or governing documents are missing
  • Financial accounts for the club are missing or out of date
  • Income and expenditure projection for the project is missing
  • Contact details missing, including telephone number
  • Not all questions answered
