Calor rural community fund

We are proud to support projects inyour local rural community.

The winners have been chosen and this year’s fund is now closed.

Congratulations to all this year’s Rural Community Fund winners. We can’t wait to watch your projects grow.

And if you missed out this year then don’t worry, the Calor Rural Community Fund will be back next year to support even more rural communities.


What could your community do with £5,000?

Pen to paper, paper to planning... You've found the perfect solution to better your community. You're raring to go. But the only thing is, you've come to a financial full stop.

It's situations like these that motivated us to create the Calor Rural Community Fund. So every year we offer rural communities, that aren't connected to the mains gas grid, the chance to gain funding for projects that will improve local life.

From the simply superb, to a well-needed refurb... We're offering grants of up to £5,000 for projects that will provide an on-going service for local communities. And, as this is the third year running of our Community Fund (and since all good things come in threes) we've not only increased our total funding contribution to £70,000, but we've also partnered up with Crowdfunder to give you the opportunity to raise even more funds There's still time to create your Crowdfunder account and receive match funding from Calor.

We're here to help rural communities like yours lead the way.
