Apply For A Grant

Welcome to our grants programmes. They have been created by our donors. Each has its own criteria and area of interest. Most support locally based community and voluntary groups. We also have a number of funds to support individuals.

To help you we have created a three step process to view and apply to any of our funds.

Please make sure you read each of the fund guidelines carefully and review what we will not fund before applying. If you are applyling online you will receive an email from us with the second part of your application. You must print and complete this form before returning it to our office.

We will automatically consider applications to all relevant funds. However, if you are unsure if you qualify to apply or would like any advice then please read our FAQs or contact us on 01900 825760 or email enquiries@cumbriafoundation.org

In most instances, we suggest you submit your application at least three months before the closing date. Please check Deadline Dates to find out when your application will be considered.

We expect all successful applicants to publicise their project and tell us how the grant has been spent and what difference it has made.  Sometimes we may even visit to see for ourselves.  We recommend that you read our monitoring guidelines before you complete your application.

If you want to apply to a particular fund it is important that you read the criteria on the Fund pages very carefully before applying to make sure you are eligible.
