Calor rural community fund

We are proud to support projects inyour local rural community.

The Calor Rural Community Fund is opening for applications on Tuesday 5th March 2019.

What is the Calor Rural Community Fund?

Whether you have a village hall that needs refurbishing, a community group in need of new equipment, a community play park overdue some upgrading, or something else that you feel would be of value to your rural community, the Calor Rural Community Fund is here to support you.

The Calor Rural Community Fund is designed to give something back, by offering rural communities that aren’t connected to the mains gas grid the chance to gain funding for projects that will improve local life.

We’re offering grants of up to £5,000 for projects that will provide an on-going service for local communities. So whether you want to support a youth club or start a class for older members of your community, our fund is here to help.

This year we are also pleased to announce that we’ve not only increased our total funding pot to £70,000, we’re also partnering with Crowdfunder to give you the opportunity to raise even more funds... watch this space to hear more!

Applications will open soon!

Applications will open on Tuesday 5th March and you’ll have until Monday 29th April to submit your project for funding. Why not register your details and we’ll send you a reminder nearer to the time!
