HOW TO APPLY

Inverclyde Community Fund Grant Scheme

You can find out more about the application process below.
If you decide ICF aligns with your group, feel free to apply via the below button.

INVERCLYDE COMMUNITY FUND

Inverclyde Community Fund is funded by donations, self-generated income and an initial cash injection from CVS Inverclyde. 


ICF provides grants of £250 - £500 for community groups and voluntary organisations to progress projects within their local communities.

It is unlikely that the trustees will wish to contribute to large projects where it will make little difference.

WHO CAN APPLY

Because the amounts available are relatively small, the trustees of ICF are keen to ensure that the grants make a big difference to small projects.

Small groups (under £5,000) of income are prioritised; it will be unusual for ICF to make grants to organisations with an income of more than £50,000. 

  

Organisations do not need to be registered charities, but do have to satisfy our definition of a voluntary organisation which:


  • has a positive community purpose;

  • has a constitution or founding document;

  • has a bank account in the name of the organisation;

  • is run by an unpaid (or mostly unpaid) committee;

  • is not set up to distribute profit to shareholders; and

  • is not run by or affiliated to a political party or a government body.

WHAT ACTIVITIES CAN BE FUNDED?

A wide range of activities could be funded but the trustees would expect that any activity funded would:

  • Demonstrably benefit Inverclyde people and communities.

  • Be inclusive of as many people as possible.

  • Bring people and communities together.
