Foundation Derbyshire is proud to be an independent local funder, offering small grants of up to £2,500 to community & voluntary groups, local charities, and CIC’s, working across Derby and Derbyshire.
Our application process is designed to be simple and accessible even for those new to funding.
We will support you each step of the way, even after your bid is submitted, collaboratively working to make your project shine.
- Grants cover a 12-month period.
- We fund equipment (capital) and general running costs such as rent and transport (revenue).
- Decisions can take 12–16 weeks from the submission of an application, often the turnaround will be quicker, but if your project is time-critical, please give us a call.
