Kent Community Foundation recognises that front-line organisations invest a great deal of resource into applying for funding, and sometimes find it challenging to secure funding for their core work and overheads. to celebrate our 20th anniversary we are delighted to offer unrestricted multi-year grants to a third tranche of local groups.

Top 10 things you need to know about our 20th Anniversary Fund - Core Support:

  1. Three year tapering support, starting in April 2021
  2. For existing core costs (nothing new) such as; utilities, rent, salaries for service delivery staff and support staff
  3. The “only one application a quarter” rule does NOT apply for this particular pot – think of it as a one-off “extra”
  4. There will be one grant per district in Kent and Medway (13 in total)
  5. The grant is for smaller organisations with an average income of up to £300,000
  6. History of successful grants with KCF – three since January 2018 with all due impact reporting submitted
  7. Priority given to organisations addressing the most urgent needs in their district
  8. If you are successful in this application for Core Support, you would be ineligible for further KCF funding during years one and two
  9. Deadline for application is 5th March 2021

KCF's enthusiasm for what we are doing and hoping to do, coupled with helpful advice, gave us the confidence to take this daunting step which has paid off.

It's great having a foundation that empowers organisations and charities in our community to make real positive differences and changes!
