Funding totalling £80,000 for Farnham’s many good causes and community organisations is available from the South Street Trust and Farnham Town Council’s community grants scheme. The Council has announced it is inviting applications now from local charities and community projects that meet the criteria of the grants.

Councillor Carole Cockburn, Leader of the Council says: “There are some excellent local organisations in Farnham and lots of deserving projects that could benefit from the grants we administer. Applications have just opened for our community grants and the South Street Trust, with cheques paid around April next year. Do check the criteria on our website as it does vary for each grant.”

Applications for up to £2,000 can be made by any local not-for-profit organisation for a community grant. Applicants will need to show how their project will help community life or the environment in Farnham or surrounding villages. The deadline is 12pm on 30 November. Decisions are made around February and March, with grants being paid in April to May 2018.

The South Street Trust is specifically for projects that are art-based educational activities. A total of £20,000 is available to be spread across successful applicants. Previous successful projects include the commissioning of an artist to work with children in 12 schools and a clay exploration class for children aged three to 11. The deadline for applications is 12pm, 8 January. Grants are decided in March and paid in April and May 2018.

Full criteria and application forms can be found on our grants page.
