United Kingdom: ACC Liverpool Group Foundation Grant Program
The ACC Liverpool Group Foundation is accepting applications for its Grant Program to encourage local community groups and voluntary organisations to apply for grants for projects aimed at supporting and targeting key community groups and diverse communities including LGBTQ+, BAME and hard to reach groups.
The ACC Liverpool Group Foundation has been established from donations raised as a result of the tremendous fundraising of ACC Liverpool Group employees. The fund is administered by the Community Foundation for Merseyside and aims to support local community groups and voluntary organisations.
The total budget available is £10,000 and the Foundation is looking to fund projects of up to £2,000 that clearly meet the criteria and can have a significant impact on the community.
