We encourage local charitable, community and environmental organisations who are seeking a grant to apply to one of our funds held with three community foundations across our northern service area.
• Tyne, Wear and Northumberland Community Foundation
• County Durham Community Foundation
• Tees Valley Community Foundation
A panel of employees meet regularly to review and make decisions on grant applications. Our funds look to support projects with a focus on health, education, sport, community and the environment with priority being given to projects in areas where we are or have been working.
In 2017/18 we gave out 15 grants totalling more than £16,000.
