A new (and final) round of Esmée Fairbairn Foundation funding is about to open through the South West Foundation.
The programme offers grants up to £1,000 for small charitable organisations based in rural areas and market and coastal towns in the South West.
They also consider applications from small charitable organisations in more urban areas assisting individuals who are underrepresented on their grants programme such as groups supporting people from ethnic minorities and people newly arrived in the UK. You do not need to be a registered charity to apply.
The programme is open to community groups with annual running costs of less than £25,000. Previous grant recipients are welcome to apply once their current grant has been monitored. If you would like more information and/or and application form contact the South West Foundation.
