Meet the Funder: National Lottery Community Fund – What Makes a Good Grant Application

If your organisation supports Buckinghamshire communities and would like to find out more about the National Lottery Community Fund grants, join us at the next free Meet the Funder session on 4 July (10.30 -11.30).

What you will take away from this event

We will be joined on this session by Craig Corbett, National Lottery Community Fund’s Funding Officer for Buckinghamshire, who will tell us about its current funding opportunities as well as share some tips and insights to help you make the most of your application.

The online session is a unique opportunity for Buckinghamshire’s not-for-profit organisations to find out how the Fund’s support and funding is evolving, including how applications will be evaluated in line with its ‘It Starts with Community’ strategy. You will also have the chance to ask the funding officer any questions you may have.

Charities and CICs can apply for either the National Lottery Community Fund’s Awards for All Programme (£300 -£20,000) or their Reaching Communities Programme (£20,000+). You can find more information on these grants on the National Lottery Community Fund website.
