Funding Opportunities for Local Community Groups
We have received the following information regarding possible funding for local community groups:
The Grassroots Grants Scheme – providing funding for community projects
The Donarbon Community Fund – providing funding for the provision, maintenance or improvement of a public park or other general public amenity, or the conservation of a specific species or a specific habitat.
Grassroots Grants Scheme
Do you need funding to run a community project? Grants between £250 and £5,000 are available for local community groups and charities that have been active in their communities for at least 12 months, with an average annual income over the last 3 years of no more than £30,000. Funding can be used to contribute to general running costs, purchase small capital items or fund specific activities.
This is the last year of the Grassroots Grants scheme and to ensure all the 10/11 funding is allocated and spent within the financial year, we are offering grants to cover costs that are anticipated to be spent by 31 December 2010.
The fund guidelines can be downloaded at www.cambscf.org.uk/grant-guidelines.html and applications made online at www.cambscf.org.uk/grant-applications.html . Applications are considered on a monthly basis.
