The Community Foundation for Calderdale (CFFC) have launched their general grants round for organisations and community groups to apply for up to £5,000 to make a difference in Calderdale.
Local business Full Circle Funerals have set up a fund with CFFC and together with their fund and money from CFFC, we are able to make grants available to not-for-profit organisations of up to £5,000. You can apply for funding if you are a new organisation, wanting to trial a new project, or continue with an existing project.
We are particularly interested in receiving your application for a grant if you project will contribute to working around homelessness and housing, poverty and disadvantage, community cohesion, mental health and well being.
As we come out of lockdown, this general grants round will be appealing for people wanting to trial new projects to make a difference to our community.
Steve Duncan, CEO of the Community Foundation for Calderdale explained, “Listening to what is happening on the ground, there is a large demand for funding and we anticipate that this grant will be very popular and we will receive a lot of applications. We are glad that we are in a position where we can match generous donors to help get the money where it is needed most so that Not For Profit organisations can re-establish themselves and recover to deliver vital work helping our community.”
Sarah Jones, founder of Full Circle Funerals in Crossley Hill, said:
“Communities everywhere are going to need extra help as we emerge from the pandemic.
“We invite groups to get in touch with the Community Foundation to apply for the financial support they need to put their plans and ideas into action so that we can rebuild together.”
