What we will fund.

Each of these funds has been gifted to One Community Foundation to support general charitable activity in Kirklees.

We can fund a wide range of items, including volunteer expenses, publicity costs, equipment, room hire, materials for activities, contributions to staffing costs etc.  The grants can be used to extend current activities or to introduce new ones.

You will have up to 12 months from your project start date to use your grant.

We do not fund any of the following:

  • Party political activity
  • Promotion of religion
  • Replacement of statutory funding
  • Groups who have not complied with previous monitoring requirements
  • Organisations that support animals
  • For-profit organisations
  • The statutory provision provided by schools and hospitals.

You can apply for up to £1,000. Please be aware that it can take up to eight weeks after the closing date before you receive any funding, so please schedule your project to start after that. If you seek a contribution to continue your project, please also add eight weeks from the closing date.

Summer Funding Round Open until 31st May. Projects must start after July 31st.
