Gosport Community Fund Opens 25 February!
The Gosport Community Lottery has enabled Gosport Voluntary Action to be able to offer one-off grants to local good causes through the Gosport Community Fund.
We are delighted to announce the fund will be open for applications from 25 February 2019, with a closing date of 30 April 2019.
We will be running a free Funding Workshop to provide information and guidance to local organisation on the Gosport Community Fund, as well some general funding advice. Light refreshments will be provided and there will be the opportunity to network and receive one to one support as well.
About the Gosport Community Fund
The Gosport Community Fund raises funds from the Gosport Community Lottery, which was launched in July 2018. For each £1 tickets players purchase, 20p is held in the Community Fund by Gosport Voluntary Action. The fund will be open for applications twice a year and a panel will be reviewing and awarding successful grants.
Organisations meeting the terms and conditions (please view here) can apply for grants of up to £1,500 and individuals can apply for grants of up to £250. Projects must be for the benefit of the Gosport Community and meet at least one of the lottery funding priorities, which are:
- Bringing people together and building strong relationships in and across communities
- Improving the places and spaces that matter to communities
- Enabling more people to fulfil their potential by working to address poverty, deprivation and isolation
