Co-op Local Community Fund

Thursday, 4 June 2020

Ed, from the Co-op, has been in touch. He wants you to know that the brilliant Community fund is now open for applications.

The Co-op Local Community Fund helps pay for local projects that Co-op members care about. Every time a Co-op member shops at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-branded products and services goes towards funding community projects in their local area.
 
This will be the Co-op's sixth round of funding and they have given away over £48m to good causes, including many Woodcraft Folk groups. There are some examples of succesful Co-op applications from Woodcraft groups on our website - woodcraft.org.uk/resources/example-grant-applications. The application is quite short and straight-forward, but if you'd like help or advice, or a pair of eyes to look over your application, then email funding@woodcraft.org.uk.
 
You can apply at www.coop.co.uk/causes

Good luck!
