The Community Chest

Applications are welcome from any voluntary or community organisation that is based, or works in, our trading area across the south of England, from Devon to Kent and north to Bristol, Swindon, Bracknell and London.

Groups can apply for grants or fundraising support ranging from £400 and £4,000 to help achieve their aims. These grants or fundraising commitments could be used towards things such as equipment and furniture, training, transport, professional assistance, specific project resources or operational costs that will help your cause.

Applications for a Community Chest grant will then be reviewed by a team of judges. With around 400 applications to assess, judges will be looking for organisations that have demonstrated that they have a real need, have begun to fundraise themselves and that any money awarded will make a difference. The judges will focus on small awards of £1,500 and under, with a handful of large awards. The large awards will be shortlisted for a judges’ visit and the small awards will be judged on the merit of their application form only.

Applications for this grant opens in February 2022.
