South West Foundation has re-opening its Small Grant Programme, funded by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, providing grants up to £1,000.
The focus is small charitable Voluntary and Community Sector Organisations with an annual income of less than £25,000. The main focus of the fund is on rural areas, market towns and small seaside towns but we do look to fund groups that are underrepresented in our current grant programmes in other areas.
In the more urban areas we can only consider applications from groups supporting people most in need in communities that are underrepresented in our grant programme. This includes BME groups.
