Sponsorship is one of the main ways of funding Millennium Greens, especially new projects. Generally, commercial and official bodies that support Greens prefer to sponsor creation projects rather than to just give money to maintain and operate Greens.

All the Millennium Greens were sponsored by National Lottery money that was put into the Millennium Commission, then allocated to the Countryside Commission to award to Millennium Green projects in stages as they were created.

The Trust Deed of each Millennium Green specifically states that Trustees may finance the Greens using sponsorship schemes.

Suggestions for where to look for grants might include:

-Woodland Trust

-Local Authority

-Landfill Tax

-National Lottery
