Coronavirus Emergency Fund - open for applications and donations
We recognise the new and significant challenges voluntary organisations are facing in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic and the financial implications on the sector. As such, we have launched our Coronavirus Emergency Fund to ameliorate some of this impact.
The fund is open now for applications for grants of up to £10,000. Priority given to constituted community groups e.g. charities/CICs, with an average annual income of less than £200,000, who are supporting isolated older people and those most vulnerable at this time.
Want to donate? We're accepting donations big or small through our Virgin Money Giving page. Simply reference 'KCF Coronavirus Emergency Fund'. 100% of your donation will go to organisations supporting the most vulnerable in our local communities.
