Gloucestershire Community Foundation awards grants to support local groups, organisations and charities working to address disadvantage in our communities.
We award grants covering a range of issues via a number of different grant programmes. We welcome new and existing groups to apply.
Each grant programme has different guidelines and requirements, so please take some time to read through them (below) and see which programme best suits your organisation's funding needs.
