GRANTS OF BETWEEN £5,000 AND £10,000 AVAILABLE

 

The OneCity Trust is pleased to announce that its main grant programme is now open for applications. Registered charities and constituted groups based in Edinburgh and focussing their work in the city with an annual income of less than £200,000 are invited to apply for funding for social inclusion projects meeting one or more of the priorities of:

 

·         COMMUNITY CONNECTEDNESS

·         CULTURAL BRIDGING

·         CIVIC INCLUSION

 

New this year is a partnership with Travis Perkins Managed Services and the City of Edinburgh Council. A Community Benefit fund offered to the Council by Travis Perkins as part of a major contract will be allocated through the OneCity Trust. Applications for this funding will be considered from organisations that involve City of Edinburgh Council tenants, or from other organisations aiming to benefit geographical areas with a high proportion of Council homes. The themes will be the same: community connectedness, cultural bridging and civic inclusion.

 

Overall, the Trust intends to make up to 8 grants, each at the level of £5,000 to £10,000.
