If you are looking to raise funds for a new project then the following programmes may be able to help:
Grants for World War I interpretation projects
The Heritage Lottery Fund has a £6 million small grants programme to enable communities to mark the centenary of World War I. First World War Now and Then.
Sharing Heritage Fund
Grants between £3,000 and £10,000 are available to help people across the UK explore, conserve and share all aspects of the history and character of their local area.
£10 million to commemorate top British events
Over the next four years the Heritage Lottery Fund will dedicate £10 million to the celebration and commemoration of the nation’s shared history.
Comic Relief has re-launched its UK Grants Programme
Charities registered in the UK and other not-for-profit organisations can apply for grants starting from £10,000 a year for three years. Their grant making strategy is based upon five themes, including ‘stronger communities’ – small grants to locally-based groups or organisations in areas of disadvantage. These grants are managed by local community foundations.
