and voluntary groups can apply for funding through Southampton City
Council’s Community Chest small grant scheme before the end of October.
The Community Chest has been running for more than 30 years,
and offers grants between £100 and £2,500 to small, volunteer led
community groups in the city.
Grants are awarded twice a year from a total budget of £100,000, split roughly between two rounds
So far this year, nearly £48,000 in funding has been awarded to
local community groups, and there’s a further £52,000 available to
award in the second round.
The deadline for applications is October 31, 2017.
Community and voluntary organisations with an annual income of
less than £250,000 supporting Southampton city residents are eligible to
apply and local organisations with an annual income of less than
£50,000 have priority.
Applications are accepted from local community groups and small voluntary organisations for a wide range of projects.
Application guidelines and forms are available on the council’s website at www.southampton.gov.uk/communitychest.
