Lincolnshire Community Foundation funding opportunities

Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the local community and voluntary sector, many organisations have lost the opportunity to generate revenue/income and have had to adapt to different working practices in order to continue offering support to those who need it most. This may affect the way they will work in the future, and charities may need time to restructure so that the services they offer are fit for purpose. Lincolnshire Community Foundation is offering the opportunity for them to secure funding to provide the breathing space needed to carry out this piece of work. Funds might be awarded to cover staff time, engage professionals to support future business planning or pilot a new project that might generate income to support future running costs.

Not for profit groups, charities, social enterprises etc can apply for up to £5,000.00 towards these costs. As long as the request relates to planning for the future sustainability of the organisation then it will be considered.

Eligibility: Not for profit volunteer led groups, social enterprises, community interest companies that have a governing document, accounts, bank account and relevant policies and procedures.

It’s likely priority will be given to requests from small-medium sized organisations that have an income of less than £500K.

The closing date for receipt of completed applications is on Friday 19 March 2021. To obtain an Application Form or to chat about your project, please contact Sue Fortune on 01529 305825 or email sue.lincolnshire@btconnect.com
