How to Apply

Applications are accepted at any time, however, they will only be considered at quarterly trustees meetings. Once grant decisions are made the awards will be paid shortly thereafter. The Trustees will not approve applications or pay awards at any other time.

To apply to the charity you will be required to complete an application form.

To ensure that an application is fully considered, the applicant must be applying from an address within Kirkgunzeon and the surrounding area, providing services to or to improve the quality of life for people who live in the area and it must fit within our funding priorities.

Please read the guidelines

Meeting the criteria does not guarantee funding as awards are made at the discretion of Trustees and their decision is final. All information is held and stored in line with the requirements of the Data Protection Act.

It is a requirement of accepting a grant that recipients provide a brief report, within an agreed time frame, that shows the monies have been spent on the purpose set out in the application form

Other Support

You can get high levels of support and assistance where this is helpful and appropriate, both during the application process and after a grant has been made.

Sometimes it is useful to discuss worries or challenging issues with someone removed from the day-to-day running of your organisation, so please do get in touch if there is something you’d like to talk through.

Match Funding

As the fund is a relatively small fund it would be advisable to seek match funding when applying for a grant. Once again if you need support and guidance on this please do not hesitate to contact us.
