LANCASHIRE WOMEN'S FUND
Grants between £5,000 and £10,000
The Community Foundation for Lancashire is delighted to announce the launch of the new Lancashire Women’s Fund after its national membership body, UK Community Foundations (UKCF), secured a record £3.4 million award from the DCMS Tampon Scheme. This is the largest grant awarded to any organisation from this fund.
The Community Foundation for Lancashire will receive in excess of £70,000 from this allocation to enable the launch of the new Lancashire Women’s Fund and ultimately aims to raise £1 million to help support local women.
The Community Foundation for Lancashire helps people and organisations to invest in local communities where it is most needed and where it will have the greatest impact. The Women’s Fund will award grants to local groups working with women and girls, including women-only charities to help women throughout Lancashire.
Local grassroots organisations will be able to apply for grants of between £5,000 and £10,000. Anyone who is interested in applying for funding, or who feel they are part of an organisation which may benefit from an award under the scheme, is urged to apply. Applications will be open on 17th September 2018 and close by 5th November 2018.
