About the Grant Scheme

Council Grants Logo

Bollington Town Council annually awards grants from their budget to Voluntary Organisations in Bollington.

The Council is particularly keen to assist organisations that are concerned with the welfare of young people and the elderly in our community.

Grant Applications are invited during July and August each year and the Town Council will advertise when the current round of applications are being accepted.

For 2021 Applications will be accepted from 1st July to 21st August.

 

Grant criteria

  1. The application must be within or for the residents of the Town.
  2. The application must come from a ‘not for profit’ or non-commercial

    community.
  3. The application must benefit the local community.

  1. Political or religious organisations
  2. Individuals – unless the individual has been selected to represent the country or attend an event that will reflect positively on the Town.
  3.  Running costs or maintenance costs of the organisation.

Letters of application must include:

  2.  Information as to the specific purpose for which the grant is required.
  3. Whether any fund-raising activities are planned to supplement any deficit.
