Priority will be given to projects that are designed to support local people and communities. Organisations receiving an award are not able to reapply until after the 3rd anniversary of the initial grant award.
Organisations must be 'grant ready' - click here for checklist
Grants will normally be offered in the range of £250* to £5,000, but larger grants are possible.
*Sponsorships, gifts and donations of less than £250
Sponsorships, gifts and grants of less than £250 are administered directly by Larkfleet Homes. The company recognises that many small groups, seeking small donations, may not be able to meet all the requirements of the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation’s application process. If you wish to apply for funding of less than £250, therefore, you can simply fill in the form that you will find here.
