One-off grants of up to £1,000 to local charities, businesses and schools
Deadline: 16 September 2016
The 2016 round of the Community Fund is open for applications and the deadline is fast approaching....
The Fund has now extended its reach and will now accept applications from organisations delivering community-based initiatives across the whole of the Peak District. The Community Fund will award one-off grants of up to £1,000 to local charities, businesses and schools. The Fund will award grants to support initiatives that will deliver a real impact by improving the environment and helping people appreciate the benefits of nature to the health and well-being of local communities and businesses. The grants should be used as part of the total budget of a project.
Applications will be reviewed by a panel of experts which includes Nestlé Waters, Andrew Bingham MP and Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, and they will be assessed on the extent to which they support each of the stated aims and objectives of the Get Better with Nature campaign:
The closing date for entries is 16 September 2016, and any activities must be underway by the end of 2016 and completed by 31 May 2017.
