Community Foundation general applications

You can make a general application to the Community Foundation at any time. If it is eligible, they will look to match it to one of their Funds.

The Community Foundation awards grants to benefit people and places in Tyne & Wear and Northumberland, and across North East England, through nearly 300 different funds set up by people and organisations who want to make a difference. They know that applying for funding can be difficult, so they aim to help to make it as straightforward as possible.

Please read the guidance on their website carefully before starting an application and, if you have any questions, please get in touch.
