£10,000 up for grabs for local groups
9:46am Monday 10th September 2012 in News
Charitable organisations can download a form to apply for grants of up to £10,000 from the charitable arm of the Craven Herald.
The Gannett Foundation, which is operated by the US company that owns the Craven Herald, is inviting applications from registered charities which make a difference in their communities and need cash for projects tackling issues in the district.
Typically, grants are given for substantial projects which merit awards of between £5,000 and £10,000 and although preference may be given to ideas which create a legacy for their community, single events or projects of limited duration will also be considered.
Decisions on the value of the funding will be made by the trustees and based on the evidence submitted.
Each nomination will be judged on its own merits at the discretion of the trustees, whose decision is final. Applications must be submitted by 5pm on Friday, September 28, 2012.
Applications must be submitted on the approved application form, which can be downloaded below. Any applications which do not meet the criteria or which do not follow our rules and procedures will be rejected.
