Rotary Bakewell Grants

Rotary Bakewell's new Community Chest is opening for bids for funding applications on 21st August 2023

The Community Chest has been established to help community and voluntary sector organisations or groups with projects that are of benefit to the wider community. The Small Grants Scheme provides non-recurrent grants of up to £250. The projects should be small-scale that provide opportunities for local people to be involved in their local community.

Bakewell Rotary Club intends to be receptive to a wide range of ideas about the types of activities it might support: the project or programme should respond to a community need in or within the catchment area of Bakewell Rotary Club and meets its criteria on the giving of grants.

What the club will need to understand is exactly what the money will be used for, who will benefit from it and how much difference it will make.

The following are organisations / projects that we have previously supported:

 1st Darley Dale Scouts

 Ashgate Hospice Care

 Bakewell Youth Theatre

 Bluebell wood children’s hospice

 Dukes Barn

 Helens trust

 High Peak Hospice Care

 Jigsaw Food Bank

 Junction Arts

 Kids Out Christmas toy boxes

Community Chest Grant issue 1 opens August 21st. Closing date for entries will be Friday 29th September 2023

It is expected that successful applications will receive the funding within 8 weeks of the closing date of applications.
