Apply Now for the Somerset Fund – United Kingdom
The Somerset Community Foundation is seeking applications to offer a simpler and more effective way for businesses to give locally.
1000 new grants and donors
This is the third grants round for the Somerset Fund. For this round, they want to fund small groups that run on less than £100,000 per year. The grants will be ‘unrestricted’, which means you can use them to pay for your ongoing running costs.
Grants of up to £2,500 are available.
What do they want to fund?
