The People’s Postcode Small Grants Programme opened for applications in Berkshire on 1 April and exists to try to make the world a better place through short-term, designated funding for projects that embody the theme of Advancement of citizenship or community development.
Through this programme, the programme provides funding for projects of up to twelve months in length, ranging from £500 up to £20,000 to registered charities, community and voluntary groups, community interest companies and other not-for-profit organisations.
£2,000 or under
Applications for £2,000 or under are open to organisations that are not registered charities (although registered charities may apply for this smaller amount if they wish). Applications are assessed on a quarterly basis.
Applications for over £2,000 are open to registered charities only. If you do not have a registered charity number, you may only apply for up to £2,000 (see above).
For more information, visit www.postcodetrust.org.uk. The deadline for applications is 30 April.
