SKIPTON BUILDING SOCIETY GRASSROOTS GIVING GRANTS 2018
The Skipton Building Society's Grassroots Giving Grants Programme offers 160 donations of £500 to local voluntary-led grassroots groups and organisations (not registered charities) that are "passionate about making life better for others" but which get very little support elsewhere.
The scheme is open to any volunteer-led organisation in the UK - you don't have to be located in an area in which the Skipton Building Society has a branch and you do not have to be a Skipton Building Society customer to apply.
Skipton is specifically looking for:
o Applications from organisations or groups that show a real commitment to their local community, particularly supporting vulnerable people;
o Volunteer orientated groups, who are used to relying on minimal funds and the goodwill and generosity of members;
o Groups who are enhancing the lives of the neighbourhoods they are operating within;
o Requests which offer "the greatest chance to progress ideas and activities with a lasting impact" which will build a legacy for their community; and
o Groups with a real vision of how they would spend their grant efficiently.
Further information, together with an application form, is available on the Society's website.
PLEASE NOTE: this is a voting scheme, whereby shortlisted projects will be subject to a public vote. Once voting has taken place all winning groups will be notified in November.
Application deadline: Tuesday 31st July 2018

Jewson:Building Better Communities Fund
Building Better Communities, the competition where deserving causes and tradespeople that make a difference in their local areas can win a share of a £250,000 total prize fund.
There are Jewson branches all over the UK and we're proud to be part of the communities where we live and work. That's why we're giving local projects the chance to win the financial support needed to transform them.
Open 27 March - 5 May
Whether you are considering the Regional Prize or Trade Hero category, it's easy and simple to do:
1. Find a project in your local community which can do with the support. It may be a new roof for a village hall, the renovation of a long-forgotten community building, or a tradesperson who wants to support a local cause.
2. Submit 300 words about your project and provide us with some photos and videos to bring your entry to life.
3. Once the nominations are in, a shortlist will be announced. If your project is lucky enough to make the list, you need to get your community behind it and vote via Facebook!
