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.

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

Voting now open!
