The fund is seeking applications primarily working with young people.  Examples include:

  • Homework clubs
  • Skills development

  • Counselling
  • Mentoring or volunteering
  • Youth Clubs
  • Arts and culture
  • The environment
  • Application forms must be completed on-line and submitted along with governing documents – Constitution, latest Annual Accounts and Safeguarding Policy by 9.00 am on the morning of Friday 16 November 2018 in order to be considered by the Grants Panel in November 2018. The form and all requested documentation must be received by this date; if not, your application will not be considered further.
  • Berkshire Community Foundation receives many more applications than there is funding available, and there is no guarantee that any application made will be successful.
