Following a brief pause in emergency funding to review our programme criteria, Gloucestershire Community Foundation are delighted to announce that two new grants programmes are opening for applications this week.

These have been designed to offer a flexible funding offering which meets the need for quick distribution of funds whilst also enabling organisations to request larger grants over a longer period of time.

The two new programmes are:

Awarding grants of up to £10,000 to enable organisations to obtain funding for lost income and core funding, adaptation of services, or an increase in demand.

This programme will have a set deadline and panel meeting. Funds will need to be spent by applicants by 31st March 2021.

Deadline for applications: 12 noon Wednesday 16th September 2021 Panel Meeting: Early October 2020

A faster response programme of grant making which will operate on a rolling basis awarding smaller grants to organisations who need a quicker response to an application to assist with their planning and enable them to be more agile with smaller projects.

Maximum grant size £5,000 with further applications allowed up to a total of £10,000 (including previous emergency grants)

This will focus on shorter term projects or more urgent funding needs.

Deadline for applications: Ongoing whilst funds are available. 

Additional details for each programme are available within our grants section on the website (or by clicking the programme links above)

We look forward to receiving your applications
