£35k available for Lincolnshire not-for-profit groups
SMALL, local not-for-profit groups or organisations can apply for a share of an annual pot of £35,000.
The maximum award is £10,000, although the average grant from Lincolnshire Community foundation is likely to be in the region of £2,000. Priority will be given to applications that provide clear evidence of need and a long term impact on people’s lives who are excluded or disadvantaged through low income, rural or social isolation, age, disabilities, race, sexuality or gender.
A quarter of the annual allocation needs to be spent on projects which increase access to sport and exercise for people who face social exclusion and isolation. The rest can be spent on schemes which increase local services, build skills of local people, increase community cohesion and respond to local economic needs.
The foundation will fund community sport activities, furniture projects, projects providing access to benefits advice, projects combating fuel poverty, community consultation exercises, community employment projects, food co-ops, running and project costs, volunteer training costs.
The next closing date for receipt of applications is October 1.
