the Community Foundation for the people of Kirklees.
Does your Kirklees voluntary group require additional funding? We currently manage the following Kirklees funds. Find out which could benefit your community group, follow the links to each fund for more information about grant funding in Kirklees.
The Foundation favours supporting grassroots community groups, and small-to-medium-sized voluntary organisations, and priority will be given to these groups. We do not normally make grants to large local and regional not-for-profit groups; or UK-wide charities, (but we might do so where there are strong relationships in our area, and the proposal has potential to achieve a substantial impact). If in doubt whether your application can be considered, please contact us (01484) 468397.
