Bolton CVS is working with Bolton at Home to deliver their Community Investment Grants of up to £500.
Organisations can make one successful application between 1 April 2019 and 31st March 2020 up to a maximum of £500. Organisations can not receive both a Tonge with the Haulgh Big Local Trust Grant and a Community Investment Grant unless they are delivering work in an area other than Tonge with the Haulgh.
Who our grants are for:
To be eligible for our grants, your organisation must:
- Be a not for profit community group or registered charity with a constitution or basic set of aims and rules for your group signed by at least two members.
- You must have a bank account in the name of the group (not an individual) with 2 signatories that are not related.
- Propose a project that will primarily help Bolton at Home customers
If you would like support to get a community bank account, a set of aims and rules or become constituted to be eligible for funding, please contact Bolton at Home’s Community Investment Team on 01204 329575.
If you are not working with Bolton at Home residents, please contact Matthew Barnes, funding officer at CVS to discuss other funding opportunities: Matthew@boltoncvs.org.uk.
What these grants are for:
The funding is to support projects that will benefit Bolton at Home customers, making a difference in their lives and local communities. Funding can help you in many ways, for example, to buy new equipment or materials, to run a community event, to launch a new group or to help promote existing groups locally.
There is a £500 limit for our Community Investment grants but we expect applications for the real costs of projects rather than the maximum grant available.
