Tuesday 23 February, Kent Community Foundation (KCF), 11.30-13.00
KCF is part of a national network of 46 Community Foundations committed to improving the lives of local people and communities, particularly the most vulnerable, isolated and disadvantaged. Not only does KCF run their owned grants programme (including their new 20th Anniversary Fund – Core Support) but they also help generous individuals, families, organisations, trusts and foundations establish and administer their own charitable funds to support the causes that mean the most to them in Kent and Medway.
The majority of KCF grant-making is to groups, in particular small community and voluntary groups that are charitable in purpose and are working for the benefit of people in Kent and Medway. You do not have to be a registered charity to apply for a grant; however the work you ask KCF to support must be legally charitable and your group must be constituted. Average grant size is £5,000.
Tuesday 2 March, Children In Need, 10.00-11.30
Children in Need fund not-for-profit organisations who work with disadvantaged children and young people aged 18 years and under, living in the UK, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands.
