Virgin Money Foundation - Community Anchor Fund
Community Anchor organisations come in different forms, however, the form of the organisation is less important than the methods they employ. They are often the driving force in a local neighbourhood, the facilitator and supporter of community activity and a way that local people of all ages can be involved in determining their shared future.
The Community Anchors' Fund will provide organisations working in the North East of England with grants between £10,000 and £50,000. The funds can be used to cover core costs, they can also be spent on designing and launching new activity. The award can be spread over one, two or three years.
The Foundation will make awards totalling £500,000 over the year. Applications will be assessed as part of a rolling grants programme. We expect to make between 10 and 15 awards. When all of the available funding has been allocated the programme will close – so we suggest you apply as soon as possible.
