Grants to Support Canoeing and Inland Waterway Conservation (UK)

The Canoe Foundation has announced that the next closing date for applications is the 31st August 2020.. The main purpose of the Canoe Foundation is to “support all to enjoy and benefit from the experience of paddling on our water in a sustainable manner”. The Foundation does this through grant making that facilitates improvements to suitable landing and launching points and by promoting the conservation of inland waterways for the benefit of all sectors of the community.

The Foundation awards grants to projects that:  

  • Increase and protect public access points, steps or platforms
  • Improve the suitability of launching and landing sites, to and alongside water, for all sectors of the community

The Foundation invites applications for grants ranging from £2,000 to £10,000; although grants typically range between £2,500 and £5,000.

Funding applications are welcome from clubs, community groups and regions with an active interest in, and project purpose of, wider canoeing participation.
