Foundation Derbyshire’s Coronavirus Fund
Foundation Derbyshire’s Coronavirus Response Fund has been established to support community groups and organisations working to tackle the impact of the Coronavirus in Derbyshire. Since March we have distributed over £1.08 million of funding on behalf of the National Emergencies Trust*, Derbyshire County Council, DCMS and our generous donors and supporters.
DCC Covid 19 Fund: Foundation Derbyshire is once again delighted to be able to offer a Derbyshire County Council funded package of grant support for Derbyshire food banks, community cafes and food projects. To find out more about the aims of the fund and the kind of projects that we are able to support, please click here.
Coronavirus Response Fund: As most of this funding has now been allocated, we have taken the decision to temporarily pause applications to our Coronavirus Response Fund. Depending on the availability of new funds, we do hope to be able to re-open for applications within a few weeks for a limited period of time and will update this page accordingly.
*The National Emergencies Trust
The National Emergencies Trust has launched an appeal to raise funds to help local charities to support those individuals suffering hardship as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. The National Emergencies Trust is distributing the money it raises through a number of charitable organisations including local Community Foundations, to ensure it reaches those who need it most. Community Foundations are well placed to support local charities to overcome challenges presented by this ongoing emergency.
