Gannett Foundation Grants - available now

CHARITIES in Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire can now apply for a grant through Newsquest, the parent company of the SNJ, Wilts & Glos Standard and Gazette.

The Foundation provides funding to registered charities and those in the local area can now apply for a grant.

A spokesman for the Foundation said: "We entertain applications of any size or ambition. Typically our grants are modest sums for practical projects, but we frequently award sums of £10,000 or more to larger projects which deserve our backing.

"The Foundation will favour projects that demonstrate good planning, oversight and financial responsibility. As a prerequisite, the submission of copies of the charity’s most recent financial accounts are required. In addition, any supporting materials and further details concerning the overall aims of the charity should be included with each submission."

Applications must be submitted by email on the approved application form, which can be downloaded here: GANNETT FOUNDATION APPLICATION FORM 2017.docx

Applications must arrive by 5pm on Monday, 9th October 2017.
