Severn Trent Community Fund Update - re-opening for applications on 1st June

Thu 21 May 2020

Back in March we annonced that we were creating a £1m Emergency Fund in response to the Covid-19 outbreak and to ask for any recommendations you’d like to make to help us identify charities most in need of support – all of the immediate response donations have now been given out and thank you again for all of your help with this.

In order to focus on this response we temporarily closed our Community Fund to new applications, and I just wanted to get in touch to share the good news with you that from 1st June 2020 we will be reopening our fund to new applications!

The aims of our Community Fund are still the same, especially since improving community wellbeing is arguably now more important than ever. Our eligibility criteria remains the same too; we’re looking to fund new projects, rather than general organisation running costs.

So, from 1st June any organisation who wants to apply can visit us here to check that they’re eligible and begin an application, and those who have already started an application will be able to log in and pick up from where they left off.
