Epping Forest - Grants for Sports, Arts, Leisure and Community Groups

 

The Grants for Sports, Arts, Leisure and Community Groups scheme is provided and administered by Epping Forest District Council. Under this programme, the Council offers the Major Grants and Three-year Revenue Grants.

Funding is intended to assist local voluntary and community groups and organisations that are providing services in line with the Council's objectives and targets.

The priority areas are as follows:

Hinrichsen Foundation

 

The Hinrichsen Foundation was founded in 1976 by Mrs Carla Eddy Hinrichsen to ensure the continuation of the tradition of supporting contemporary music established by the Hinrichsen family as the proprietors of Edition Peters the music publishers, established more than 200 years ago in the German city of Leipzig.

Community Project Funding

 

MfA really know first-hand what an amazing affect making music can have on people’s lives. They see everything from disadvantaged young people blossoming at school through to older adults discovering music sometimes for the first time, much later on in life. In their view, EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn to play music. Sadly, many people are not fortunate enough to have access to musical instruments or ways to help them to learn and discover.  This is where MfA come in.

The Idlewild Trust grant scheme

 

The Idlewild Trust is a grant making trust that supports registered charities concerned with the encouragement of the performing and fine arts and crafts, the advancement of education within the arts and the preservation for the benefit of the public of lands, buildings and other objects of beauty or historic interest in the UK. The Trust awards around £120,000 each year in grants and considers making grants of up to £5,000. 

Leathersellers Small Grants Programme

 

This is a fast track application process for small one-off grants. The value of the grant awarded could be up to a maximum of £3,000, however the average level of grant is £500 - £1,500. A decision should be made within 6 weeks of receiving your application.

Their current areas of priority are Education, Disability, Children & Young People and the Relief of Need. They will also prioritise those charities working for the benefit of people in Greater London.

 

Foyle Foundation Small Grants Scheme

 

The Small Grants Scheme is designed to support charities registered and operating in the United Kingdom, especially those working at grass roots and local community level, in any field, across a wide range of activities.  School PTAs and Friend groups are not eligible to apply.  Newly set up charities without a track record are unlikely to be successful.

Online applications can be accepted from charities that have an annual turnover of less than £150,000 per annum.
