Funding jargon set to be busted

Anita Pati

The Association of Charitable Foundations is consulting on a new resource called Jargonbuster, which has been designed to demystify some of the terms that funders and charities use to describe programmes.

It explains terms such as impact, target, milestone and indicator, with examples of each term used in context.

The draft has been drawn up by the Jargonbuster Steering Group, which includes the Association of Charitable Foundations, the Big Lottery Fund and the Charity Commission.

The feedback form on the Jargonbuster pages of the Charities Aid Foundation website can be accessed until June. A revised Jargonbuster will be developed after feedback is received.
