The local Fund, administered by the Two Ridings Community Foundation, aims to support small local charities and charitable organisations who have a positive impact on the wellbeing of people in York, and who are at risk from closure due to the financial challenges of the Coronavirus Pandemic.
The Fund was set-up with thanks to donations raised through the ‘Keep the lights on’ public appeal, and with matched funding from Two Ridings Community Foundation.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available for core running costs, for example:
– Volunteer recruitment
– Overhead costs (utility bills, rent etc.)
This list is not exhaustive.
How to apply?
Before applying, please read the The York Small Charities Fund guidance notes 2020 for this grant scheme carefully.
Deadline: Friday 11 September 2020.
