About GCF News The GAVCA legacy fund We are pleased to announce the establishment of the GAVCA Legacy Fund. The GAVCA Legacy Fund will enable Gloucestershire community groups to strengthen their services through capacity building (including training) and grants will also be available to any new groups in need of governance and financial advice. Starting in 2017, grants will be available for small and medium-sized organisations who want to grow and invest for future sustainability. GAVCA - the Gloucestershire Association for Voluntary and Community Action - closed its doors in May 2016 and the fund was set up following the transfer of remaining funds. To apply for a grant, please go through the main grants programme here and highlight that you are applying for the “GAVCA fund” on your application.
